On 15th April 2013, a couple whack-jobs detonated a bomb in Boston at the Marathon.
Three people died and several hundreds were injured.
Make no mistake, this is a tragedy, there is no doubt about it and most of us will hopefully agree. Lots has already been said and posted.
BUT...for 20 days now, there is NOTHING ELSE on the media (CNN etc.) but the bombing. They talk about the bombing, the bomber, their motives, the
injured and of course the dead.
Again, make no mistake, three dead is a horrible thing, but the truth is that accidents and catastrophes happen every day where a LOT more people die.
While the Marathon bombing was #1 topic on all major news site and obviously there is nothing "more important" than that...a factory in Bangladesh
exploded, killing 350 (THREE HUNDRED FIFTY) people. This was "minor" news. I wonder how many innocent people died in the 20 days since gone in car
accidents, drunk driving, murder, wars and and what not.
The constant news about the Marathon bombing slowly gets annoying and embarrasing - showing clearly how America is obsessed with terrorism, to a point
that people in NY are already freaking out over nightly fireworks. In terms of damage, death toll and whatever political impact I think the Boston
bombing is entirely irrelevant. More pressing things are going on on this planet - REALLY.
