Boston Marathon – Another Reminder

Sometimes we whinge about things like long airport queues, over-reaching government snooping and other measures which make everyday activities more painful than “it need be”.

The attacks at the Boston Marathon this morning remind us terrorism is real – alive and well. Osama may be dead, Arab Spring may have happened, Afghanistan may be seeing western troops leaving but terrorism appears not to have abated.

Reminder to self: those “interferences” at airports, tax forms, security questions etc are necessary. Otherwise, this happens.
