Death in Boston

By Capt. Fogg

The only sure thing early this morning is that gun sales are going to escalate further. Car chases, explosions and gunfire -- it needs only a collision with a fruit cart to be eligible for a Clint Eastwood movie. Despite the media effort, most of us, or at least a great many of us are not staying home, mourning and healing and simpering in baby-talk about not hurting people -- they're looking for a gun shop that still has AR-15 and AK47 clones and ammunition.

CNN is busy as of 9 am Eastern assuring us that we can't just assume these two brothers are Muslim or that if they are it's irrelevant. If you're a Muslim, it's relevant to you and you have my sympathy. This isn't going to make your life easier.

No, I don't think America is mourning. America is arming, once again, and just like 2001, it isn't going to be pretty. Did everything change on 9/11? Hell no, we were just finally dragged out of our sheltered nursery and into life on Earth where people get hurt, safety is relative and ephemeral, and life just isn't fair.
