      So I guess they do have some connection

      •  Well, hadn't thought about it like that. (0+ / 0-)

        What was really offensive, to me anyway, was the anchor sat there with a huge ear-to-ear grin on his fact the entire time.

          But one of the cable stations had a runner that had just finished before the bombs went off call in to talk about what he had experienced. And the guy was clearly not used to talking to reporters on national TV and sort of had a nervous chuckle going on a few times when he didn't know how to say things eloquently, and it was a little unnerving to listen to. The guy didn't mean it in a disrespectful way, I'm sure or to belittle what had happened, but it was just odd to listen to.
