Bombings & Dronings

Again, we’re all saddened by a bombing that targets civilians. This time, it’s marathon athletes, organizers and spectators in Boston, Massachusetts who fell prey to the bombing. Meanwhile, a facebook contact–an American, if you care to know–posted on her timeline a link to an interactive website that documents the drone bombing incidents in Pakistan and the number of casualties.
