As much as the media would like to hype the Boston Marathon bombings, this was not another 9/11.
I cannot imagine an Indiana governor or mayor telling residents to lock their doors and hide for an entire day. People were actually told not to go to work on Friday because a 19-year-old with a pressure cooker might be walking the streets.
I guess this would make perfect sense to a liberal from Boston, where law-abiding gun owners are looked at as potential felons. I just don't see Hoosiers locking themselves in their home and hiding in fear. I'd like to think they would have carried on with their daily routines while keeping their eye out for a madman with a pressure cooker.
Terrorists are called terrorists because terror is what they wish to inflict on their enemies, and this is what they achieved in Boston.
Sorry to liberals I may have offended with this letter. On second thought, disregard the previous sentence.
