On the Boston Marathon

I hate to inundate you with more Boston Marathon news, but consuming any and all information available seems to be the only way I know how to deal, and I’m sure it’s the same for many others out there. It’s also incredibly interesting to watch how the media reacts to the bombings and what different journalists/outlets are say and write in the aftermath.

For anything and everything, Boston.com.

From The New Yorker, The Meaning of the Boston Marathon

The Washington Post‘s front page for the Tuesday, April 16th paper, with the now iconic photo of the 78 year old man who fell when the bomb exploded and then finished the race. Blasts stagger Boston: WaPO front page (suburban edition)

An interesting tidbit of information: The New York Times suspended its paywall after the bombings so that everyone could have access to the website. NYT is providing unlimited access to http://nytimes.com  and mobile apps until 12:01 a.m. ET 4/16/13, according to their Twitter.

We all love the “Keep calm and carry on” signage, but after today, it takes on a whole new meaning. The nation’s, and individuals’, reactions over next 24-48 hours will be very telling. But as Bruce Schneier from The Atlantic writes in this piece, “Refuse to be terrorized.” (That applies to journalists, too.) The Boston Marathon Bombing: Keep Calm and Carry On

Today was Patriot’s Day in Massachusetts. What’s the significance? Slate takes a look, warning not to take too much from it before we know more. The Significance of Patriot’s Day
