Frank, there are times to troll, and times not to.

This is terrible. Hopefully everyone is ok.

Of course in this era, one must ask, was this planned? Is it a terrorist attack? Who did it?

Authorities have found 2 other explosive devices in Boston.

Looking more and more like a terrorist attack....

There are more victims reported now--at least 64, but hospitals are reporting over 100.

I live about 5 miles away from the scene of the incident. Didn't go see it though, unlike the rest of the Boston-area community.

And this is a time to. :lol:

Black humour never kills anyone. Anyway since I don't have any relatives involved, I don't give a damn. No hypocrisy !

Why should an American life be more valuable than that of an Afghan or a Syrian?

Right so Afghan and Syrian lives mean shit as well since these Americans lives don't mean shit.

I agree American lives aren't worth more than any other. But, but, but: among the two people dead is an 8-year-old-boy. Surely a child's live is worth more than a normal life--all the unlived potential, gone because the poor child went to see something exciting.

I wonder how many innocent women and children have been killed by the drones

In order to be a true humanitarian you must discount the lives of anyone killed in a tragedy who happen to be privileged because if you show any signs of grief for these privileged people it automatically means you are discounting the lives of less privileged people.
