Now that we have reached a successful ending in Boston after Friday's craziness, here's a couple of quick thoughts:
....the cops always win! No matter if you are a stupid criminal or a rogue terrorist wreaking havoc on our everyday lives, the police are smarter and better equipped and trained, and they will hunt you down and win. God bless the cops.
....funny how politicians fight their way into the camera angles so they can be seen. They really don't deserve the credit but have no problem taking it when the cameras and lights are on.
....if I was in charge last night, I would have immediately said to the good people of Boston: "Thank you for your patience. Thanks to all the law enforcement professionals who did their job and make a safe. Please remember our victims of this senseless tragedy. Now, please go out and celebrate that America and Boston has won a big battle against evil. I am waiving the laws for one weekend so all Boston bars and restaurants can remain open as long at they want until Monday morning to revitalize our economy and celebrate America's victory. God bless Boston and our troops!" But, I'm just a dumb DJ and not a politician, so what do I know?
....I know there are people in Rochester who care! Read below and go support tonight....
AMERKS WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS TO HOLD SPECIAL RAFFLE AT SATURDAY’S GAME
(Rochester, NY)… The Rochester Americans players’ wives and girlfriends will be running a special fundraising raffle to benefit the family of Nazareth Hockey Coach George Roll, whose wife has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, during the Amerks game versus the Hamilton Bulldogs on Saturday, April 20 at The Blue Cross Arena.
