Boston Marathon was bombed  
It's the not knowing that drives me mad.
Who planted those bombs? Why did he/she do it?

I don't mean to imply that I don't care that people were injured - I do think it's horrible. But what makes me continue to check the news pages and listen to the radio as I drive around town is not the rising body count, but my desire to find out which terrorist organization did this, or what deranged individual masterminded the explosions at the Boston Marathon. My gut instinct is that this is the work of some sort of loan wolf Tim McVeigh-like individual, but of course I don't know. I wouldn't be surprised if North Korea doesn't somehow try to claim credit for it as part of their "war" on the rest of the world. But I think it's just an angry and/or insane individual, not a terrorist organization like Al-Qaeda.

My brother was melancholy tonight when I stopped by the house. He lived in Boston for a time, so he feels closer to the events. I visited the city once, and I know that I walked around the area where the bombings were, but when I close my eyes I can't visualize the Marathon Sports store. I also don't know anyone living in the area, but he still might.

It's incredibly sad though. I feel for those poor families.
