I really have no words for the tragedy that happened in Boston today, and I'm struggling to comprehend the cowardice of those responsible. As a runner, I'm familiar with the personal challenges, as well as the feelings of pride and achievement, that come with participating in an event like this. Assembled at the Boston Marathon today was an international community of runners - individuals representing dozens of different countries, pursuing not only their own personal goals, but also many who were running to benefit charities in need.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the innocent victims of today's tragedy. I'm especially praying that my local friends, who were participating in the event, come home safely.

Be kind to each other, everyone.

So sad!

Okay, my family said I was crazy, but I knew I felt an earthquake!

5.9 hit Virginia, and I felt it all the way up here in PA!

That is not something we get in this area!

Whoa!

It was sad enough to hear of Farrah Fawcett's passing this morning, but this . . .

Michael Jackson has died of cardiac arrest at the age of 50.

Regardless of what he became later in life, he was truly one of my first favorite performers of all time. Another supremely talented star, with an all too tragic end.

May he rest in peace.

ETA: Larry King just made an excellent point: by next week so many people are going to make the tabloids explode with their horror stories and "newly revealed" scandals about Michael Jackson. For the brief time that we have between now and then, it's best to remember him for the good things that he did - he was an undeniable talent and gave so much to the world of music.

The Stupid. It burns.

California woman sues Quaker Cereal for misleading consumers into thinking that "Cap'n Crunch Crunch Berries" is made with real fruit.

Seriously? A person is willing to admit to being *that* gullible? I mean just look at the box!

As if that wasn't bad enough, the woman claimed to have been misled . . . for four years!! So she had spent years eating the stuff! (Even a person making up a lawsuit hoping for a big payoff has to realize what kind of idiot this claim makes them look like!)

Then, even worse, add in the fact that "Crunch Berries" in general have been on the shelves for over 40 years! Which means, in nearly half a century, no one else has made this mistake.

The woman clearly has bigger problems than what is in her cereal.

Best quote by the judge who threw the case out: "As far as this court has been been made aware, there is no such fruit (as Crunch Berries) growing in the wild or occurring naturally in any part of the world."

*shudders at the stupid*

I found this clip rather disturbing. Even a little uncomfortable to watch.

Eep.

[livejournal.com profile] petzipellepingo posted this link earlier. It's definitely well worth passing along:

Donate to the Australian Red Cross here and help send aid to those whose lives were affected by the horrible brushfires in Victoria and throughout southern Australia.

Hugs and good thoughts to those on my flist (as well as some RL friends) who have any connection to this tragedy.
