Kevin Cullen, of the Boston Globe:
I don’t want to listen to how innocent people bear some responsibility for creating the twisted minds of the Tsarnaev brothers.
Let us first bury our dead, heal our wounded, tend to our damaged first responders. Then maybe I’ll listen to that “what did we do to make them hate us” claptrap. Then maybe I’ll go to some soul-searching debate about how our foreign policy is creating too many enemies and too few allies.
But then, maybe I won’t.
Works for me. While I appreciate Alfred Pennyworth’s ability to turn a phrase, I didn’t need him to tell me that some people just want to watch the world burn.
