They are all heroes. Gawd bless Murca.

The security response was completely over the top.
If we react to every incident with out-of-proportion solutions, we'll soon be atrophied.  Is it too late, is there any stopping the security state train?

Let it go. It's too late.

I will not be happy until I read a feel-good story about every single runner.

To be fair, traffic along I-93 is a huge pain.

I think the hero tag was for those people who have been running since last year.  That is a pretty heroic effort.

As a Massachusetts resident, I really wish Bostonians, and everyone really, would shut the fark up about the marathon bombing.

Do you remember the lock down that happened when they were looking for the bomber (that actually did no good)? It is too late...

The coverage was just over the top schmaltz. During the pre-race portion they were talking about the ceremonies earlier in the week. It rained during one of them and the announcer said something about how appropriate it was because they were "God's tears".

Huh. around my parts of Boston, it doesn't come up other than sharing the wish that the media would shut up about it.  But I have a sampling bias.

[citation needed] and also it wasn't a lock down.  they asked nicely and we were happy to oblige if they thought it would make things easier for them to do their farking jobs. so if you want to object, talk to us as citizens, but don't pin it on our government.

/my place is a few blocks from their house, and yes, we could hear the gunfire.
//Boston police, fire, and medical professionals... incredible. you guys are awesome.
///Big Papi's comments FTW

I truly think if I'd seen that report I would have puked.

I think the race was rigged. First time in 30+ years that an American won. Gotta be rigged like the NBA.

Eh, the security state needs serious pruning, but not because of the "stay off the streets" thing.

Co-operating with legitimate law enforcement efforts doesn't automatically mean "omfg fascism".

If we shut up, the terrists win.  If we stop patting ourselves on the back until our arms break and calling everybody within a five-block radius a goddamn hero, the terrists win. If we stop turning every bombing into an opportunity to sell feel-good semi-biographies, pop-up commemorative coins, and ABC after-school specials, the terrists win.

Why you hate Murica?

Could be they're just really slow.
