08:22 AM ET 04.16 | How quickly things changed on Monday for Rangers prospect Dylan McIlrath. [McIlrath] had planned to spend a relaxing off-day in Boston but instead spent the afternoon running from danger. McIlrath, who plays for the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League in Hartford, was walking toward the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday afternoon with family friends when he realized the rest of the crowd was rushing past them the opposite way, "some people crying, in panic mode." ... "We were around the MIT campus, heading over the bridge, heard a couple of loud noises -- which obviously were the bombs -- and then there was a rush of people crossing the bridge. We didn't know what was going on at the time."

Wouldn't surprise me at all if this perp is some home grown nut job who's a failure in life and pissed at the world because he doesn't think he's gotten a fair shake from his government, school, church, society or parents. It's never their fault, you see.

Tieing them to a pole in the center of town and letting the good folks of Boston do what they will works for me.

Every city has a home grown nut job.....we have the best of everthing, but to some, the so called "system" owes them more, so they take their failures and frustrations out on innocent people...go figure...Music City Marathon is in two weeks....30,000 runners anticipated......now city has to go into super defensive mode to try and prevent a copy cat......so sad for the loss of life and the collateral damages to the innocent victims.....but, we are a resilient country....whoever is responsible, death would be to good for them....make them suffer.....make the punsishment a marathon of pain.....for those of the past who paved the way for our freedom today....Thank You..........

Patton Oswalt's tweet

Boston. F' ing horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, 'Well, I've had it with humanity.'

But I was wrong. I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, "The good outnumber you, and we always will."

Way way too many threads makes me long for when we complained when we'd get 1 or 2 on weekends
