That is even worse news. So sad

The great Patton Oswalt had some positive things to say about it, which made me feel better.


Boston. Fucking horrible. I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, "Well, I've had it with humanity." But I was wrong. I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths. But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness. But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago. So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, "The good outnumber you, and we always will."


Made me think of Robert Kennedy quoting Aeschylus after the assassination of MLK. We must "dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and to make gentle the life of this world."

With missing limbs in the double digits. What a shame. An important holiday for Boston and a historic sporting event marred by this unnecessary violence.

My mind has been going a mile a minute since hearing about this and I can not get any sleep.

Anyone in the same boat?

If I'm allowed to speculate, I would like to point out the date of today's attack is very close to the date of the Oklahoma City bombing which I'm sure you guys knew that already.

But anyway - it's a sad day indeed and if I had a new song to share with PG I would.

Of all places - why a marathon?

I'm just turning in right now and I know my mind will be racing just like yours. Oh and Jake, when you have kids of your own - your mind will be racing twice as much. I'm not painting a bright future for you aren't I? Sorry.

I'm gonna beat the shit out of my kids so much, I probably won't care too much for their well being. Seriously though, I have friends who are dads and am good friends with my own dad and from what I've seen the positives far outweigh the negative

and yeah.. i'm the kind of person who should be on sleeping pills but am too gunshy to take shit like ambien so i just self medicate with nyquil once or twice a week. even when i get a good workout right before i still can't help my mind from racing & keeping me up. doubt i'm gonna sleep much tonight, I tried sitting infront of CNN all day and still cant digest this tragedy.

Facebook really brings out the worst in our country after these events. Can't believe there are people making light of the situation and the lives lost.



I've seen jokes, conspiracy theories, and callous disregard. These were posted by "friends" for lack of better word. It really makes me more sick than the event itself...
"Oh no what if it's the gov trying to disarm us" Fuck you, people were just literally disarmed a day ago, quit the shit for a short amount of time.

Thanks for reminding me. I'm working very hard on enjoying life and not let 'what could happen' ruin it.
