Parents of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old killed in the Boston Marathon bombings. In their statement after the younger Tsarnaev was caught, they expressed their appreciation of law enforcement efforts, but end it with this.
I read this in the Globe’s phenomenal story of the insane manhunt that captured this city for, evidently, 102 hours.
- Guy: *claps other guy with CNN camera on the back* Hey man, sorry about the other week, pretty rough, huh?
- CNN guy: What?
- Guy: You know, the dark-skinned thing, the whole someone's-in-custody thing, that fucker John King made you all look like assholes.
- CNN guy: *stares*
Judge Marianne B. Bowler, at Beth Israel Hospital presiding over Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s initial appearance.
(Through his attorney, Tsarnaev agreed to voluntary detention. Because a) he can’t walk, or move, in any case, and b) we just shut down an entire city to find this guy. Pretty sure they’re not going to let him go. Also, I really hope I don’t have to be in court the day this guy is arraigned.)
It’s so weird to see my home on the news.
Boston is my home.
And it’s on the news now, shattered and smoke-filled. I live here. I see these pictures, and I just think - I was there. Shortly before those explosions, I was there. I work here and drink here and dance here and live here.
I’m still here.
eamcintyre started following you
i’m very angry with you, just so you know
You should be flattered! I hadn’t been on tumblr for quite awhile, and was scrolling through my dash, and thought, “Huh, I don’t see any posts from Amanda. Has she really not posted at all today? Or yesterday? Is she STILL THERE?”
And then I spent a good few minutes trying different combinations of your blog URL (my browser thought it was s-tayinbedgrowyourhair, what’s up with that?) and then AHA I found it and weirdly I wasn’t following you. Evidently Tumblr makes you randomly unfollow people? Because I definitely was following you last time I checked in on tumblr, but then… not.
I was typing in Word for Mac 2011 and my 35 page paper suddenly turned into asterisks. I closed the program and reopened, and it was still asterisks. It’s just this file. Tried re-opening in Pages and Text Edit, same thing.
Has anyone ever had this happen and can anyone help?
