After previous attacks against the country, our elected leaders have urged us to get back to work, to start living life normally again; failure to do so, it is said, means that the terrorists “win.”
I want everyone responsible for the Boston Marathon attack caught and punished. But with Boston and its surrounding towns and cities all shut down right now, who is winning on Friday, April 19?
Telling everyone to stay inside and lock their doors seems kind of, you know, terror-ish.
I’m not suggesting that the current response is wrong. I am saying that it’s rather disconcerting.
