Boston and the Myth of Closure

Well one bomber is gone, and the other is rolling down that same highway, just a little ways back.

Interesting to me how many people desperately want to take the second one alive, to find out “Why they did it, what are the reasons?”

Realistically, what will we find?  That they were outside the usual boundaries of our society,  unable to integrate, cut off from friends or family, operating in a parallel universe.  Paranoid and depressed, or maybe like the Columbine boys, one was paranoid, the other depressed, and it formed a perfect petri dish in which to grow this horrible germ.

We all want the world to make sense, to be reasonable, to be sane.

Nothing can justify their actions, reasons are just bad jokes.

There is no sanity here.
