  I am avoiding the news today. I have no interest in over-coverage of the Boston Marathon story. I am tired of the flag-waving crap that really serves no other purpose than to divert the attention of the nation away from everything else. It is a sad commentary that the alleged media in this country is focused on something that happened in the past and can be re-packaged as "human interest" rather than pursue any other news.
    What happened in Boston last year was a tragedy, but it is in the past. I am amazed at the amount of resources the media will allocate to this old story. It seems that the media want to convey the message that everything is fine and that there is nothing happening worth knowing in the world today.
