I posted my weekly column today at CIC on the Boston attacks. It is too soon to speculate, but I had a hard time thinking about anything else right now. So, I discuss the realities of the situation--we cannot stop every single person who wants to commit such acts every single time, so we must be resilient in the face of such awful events. The ways that folks near and far reacted to the attack give some solace.
Your thoughts are welcome either here or at CIC (or both).
