Thoughts on the explosions at the Boston Marathon

The first thing this makes me think of and again, I haven’t had the time to see or read a lot on it yet, it makes me think of the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympic Games and the bomb that went off there…

Richard Jewell was blamed and arrested and Eric Rudolph was the culprit and he was later apprehended in the North Carolina mountains up near Brevard, I believe…

Maybe because both involved major sporting events, Olympics and Boston Marathon….

Sort of like a Boston Massacre today and not trying to be cute or funny with that reference, it just seems to fit…..

    In that sense they were analogous to the pipe bombs that killed two and injured 100 in 1996 at Atlanta’s Centennial Park during the Olympics.
