The Boston bombing and the follow up pursuit brought out the best of DU. [View all]



Lots of well informed posters.

Lots of real time skewering of CNN and other pundits, for good reason, by OPs loaded with facts and thoughtful observations.

Continual focus on the human dimension, the challenge to Boston and the unique flavor of Bostonian resolve.

Staying tuned to DU saved lots of time trying to follow so much wasted air on cable and the internets.

Some missteps, as you would expect in any controversial discussion held by a passionate and diverse group of well informed and strongly opinionated people, but this community has a fundamental reasoned and humanitarian touch that is hard to find and is reassuring in times like this.
