    with a speech extolling the superiority of Massachusetts, culminating with a few rousing lines from Longfellow's "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere".  I always emphasize what a great holiday it is, with the Marathon and the Sox game and everyone just being outside and having a lot of fun.  The Marathon was much, much smaller when I was a kid but still a great event.

    I'm sad and angry that some creep has taken innocent lives and destroyed that feeling of fun & camaraderie - we have so little of that left in our country.  I know Boston will bounce back, but it's heartbreaking.
