Some more news on the Boston incident.
From our brothers in Rule Five over at The Other McCain:
When You Report Breaking News, Be Like Joe Friday: ‘Just the Facts, Ma’am’ When mentioning Chris Matthews, by the way, one should always take care to use his full title: “That idiot Chris Matthews.”
Shorter @DylanByers: ‘Hurry Up, FBI, So We Can Start the Media Blame Game!’ Money quote: To translate: By “a very important national conversation,” of course Dylan Byers means, another chance to turn a horrible tragedy into a political talking point.
I agree with Jackie Wellfonder: “Be still and know.”
From PJ Media:
Saudi King to Obama: Boston Bombers Belonged to ‘No Religion at All’ That, of course, remains to be seen. The Saudis understandably want to distance themselves from this thing as quickly as possible. If the perps end up being Saudis – and there is a Saudi national in custody now – that will become harder for them.
Drudge (as usual) has a wealth of links to many and varied news sources. And another incident, almost certainly unrelated: A pipe bomb has been found and detonated in, of all places, Cedar Falls, Iowa. No kidding.
I’m familiar with Cedar Falls – very familiar, being a graduate of that town’s only high school. Cedar Falls is a quiet, rather dull little Midwestern college town where (usually) not much ever happens. This incident is probably much too soon to be a copycat, and may in fact be something as innocuous as dumbass teenagers fooling around with something they should leave alone. Until more information surfaces, I’ll follow Mr. McCain’s lead and be still and know.
Strange days, True Believers; strange days.
