I was going to blog today about the Boston Marathon bombing. I was down there by the finish line this year but I left before the bombs went off.
Today my city is on lockdown due to the manhunt for the bombers. I hear they caught one of them. There are A LOT of rumors going around.
In our Cambridge neighborhood things sound pretty normal. I hear traffic on the street, construction sounds, garbage pickup, fuel truck reloading. No sirens, no helicopters. Do they not use helicopters for manhunts anymore?
Instead of writing what I was going to write I will wait and see what happens. I expect that whatever happens will not directly involve me. Whatever it is, I hope it resolves soon.
It's a nice, sunny day, already over sixty degrees out. I think I want to have a hot dog for breakfast. Then maybe I'll paint my nails. And stay glued to Twitter, Facebook and Boston.com. We're not supposed to leave the apartment, after all.
Don't get me wrong though. This is not a holiday. This is sad.
