Boston: Locking down the city where the American Revolution was born
Saturday, April 20, 2013
No taxis. No buses. No trains. No flights. Stores shuttered. Empty streets. Doors locked. Massive police presence. Stay inside. Don’t move. Watch television. Get the latest reports.
If you need to muse on something, you might remember a few significant events that occurred on or around Patriot’s Day, the anniversary of the opening battles in the American Revolution:
Final attack on the Waco Branch Davidian compound: April 19, 1993.
Oklahoma City bombing: April 19th, 1995.
Columbine school shooting: April 20, 1999.
Virginia Tech shooting: April 16, 2007.
Boston Marathon bombing: April 15, 2013
Don’t worry your pretty little head about it, though. Things happen. They’re meaningless.
But have faith.
That’s right. I forgot. We’re supposed to take it on trust.
The word from on high has come down… The two Chechen brothers planted bombs at the Boston Marathon.
The FBI claims they have video to prove this, but of course we haven’t seen it.
