    sports in the US. This could be accomplished just as they grounded every airplane from our sky for a long time (it seemed forever) and forced us all to take off our shoes when we fly the friendly skys.

    Bombing the Boston Marathon did not accomplish that kind of terror. No it is another tree the bomber was barking up. They amputated the legs off many people known as casualties but they didn't not shut down spectator sports in the US.

    guns are fun v. hey buddy, watch what you are doing -- which side are you on?

    •  Marathons aren't (0+ / 0-)

      spectator sports.

      They're not on TV, they don't attract paying customers, they don't generate huge salaries for talented individuals.

      If somebody was going after spectator sports, they'd hit one of the biggies - baseball, basketball, football, or even NASCAR.

      Those would be harder to attack, but certainly not impossible. And they would definitely impact attendance.
