Boston - Bloody but Unbowed

I was going to write a much longer piece this morning, but I decided to keep it short and simple. Boston is a little city with a big attitude. Sometimes this comes in the form of drunken Townies raising hell and making a ruckus after a big loss at Fenway Park. Other times, it comes in the form of drunken Townies dressing up as Indians, raiding a merchant ship in the harbor, dumping its cargo of tea overboard to protest some taxes, and starting a revolution.

Either way, if there's one thing this town is known for, it's attitude, and I'm certain that over the next few months, Boston is going to show the world that we can take a cheap shot and come back swinging with the best of them. And as for those who are responsible for the bombings - well...I'd say you better hope the Law finds you before the drunken Townies do, but...c'mon. Haven't you seen The Departed?

I'd like to ecjho the sentiment here and add a link to an op-ed by Dennis Lehane, another author who knows something about Boston and writing a good thriller. And at this time word is trickling in that the authorities may have made some serious headway in the investigation.
