Yesterday’s bombings render my critique of Obama’s terrible negotiating skills rather pointless this week, but I’m sure it’ll be relevant again soon enough. While devouring any scrap of info about the events in Copley Square yesterday, I ran across a few news items showing how immigration reform and gun control are being turned into toothless legislation at this very moment.
I might have more to say about the bombings later, but I have nothing insightful to add. In addition to the first-responders, a hearty thanks to all the Boston area hospitals and their trauma surgeons, nurses, and staff. Without them, the death toll could very likely be much higher.
