I am not denying the importance of the Boston Marathon Bombings. but it makes we wonder just how important were they. Since the bombings occurred we have had an earthquake in China that killed hundreds, North Korea still stands poised to shoot off missiles, A Town in Texas was devastated by an explosion with 14 dead, hundreds have been killed in terrorists bombings in other countries, Our national debt increases, Afghanistan and Iraq still loom over us and the Europeans, from the lack of news, have apparently solved their debt crisis. Prior to the Boston Marathon those were all “fears” being feverishly fomented by the media. Now they have all seemingly disappeared.
Three other suggestions for the media, never show the bomber’s faces again, show a darkened profile and refer to them as murderers without ever again using their names, not terrorists not Chechens, not college students but murderers. Second, don’t ever again make your third from the top headline on your web page the day after something like this happens, “Celebrity Tweats .” it says more about you than you could ever know. Third stop interviewing the murderer’s relatives, its painful for them, its painful for us and at this point I feel like I know more about the murderers than I do about my own children.
