#3812: As always, the first reports were wrong.

Two bombs only--no others. Still, they were quite enough, even so, weren't they? Lord have mercy.

That poor guy I was talking about yesterday lost both legs below the knees. That link is safe as they've cropped the image so that it doesn't show the gruesome parts.

Another person likening the Boston Marathon bombs to Bill Ayers' bombs.

JayG also mentions Bill Ayers:
consider "white terrorists. After Tim McVeigh, we've got... Um... Let's see... Oh yeah, that's right. Bill Ayers. Next, what would "special privilege be? McVeigh was executed in - for the death penalty - record time; his conspirator jailed for life. Bill Ayers? Remind me what his sentence was, again?

Maybe there's something to this after all - as long as those white terrorists are mentors to the current Teleprompter-in-Chief...
The left just makes me sick.

Roofers' union that supported Obamacare is now against it, because they've tardily realized it will make union workers more expensive and therefore less competetive in the job market.

Welcome to reality, guys! We were waiting for you!

Karl Denninger discusses the popping of the metals bubble. It's not just gold; it's other metals, and copper is a big one.

Again: take a casual look around you. Everything within sight that uses electricity--everything--has copper in it. That doesn't even begin to include other products that also include copper; I know nearly nothing about metallurgy but I do know that we alloy things with copper to lend certain properties to them. Anything that's chrome plated has a thin layer of copper plating under the chrome.

Like aluminum, copper is a metal that is essential to the world economy. If the price of copper is falling, it means demand is falling, and that is emphatically not good for economic prospects.

Looks as if I'm going to have to cut the grass pretty soon. That is to say, if it will stop raining long enough so the back yard isn't a frickin' swamp....
