Somehow Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report managed a combination of deep respect and humor in his commentary on the Boston bombing:

And when those bombs went off, there were runners who, after finishing a marathon, kept running for another two miles to the hospital to donate blood.

So here’s what I know. These maniacs may have tried to make life bad for the people of Boston, but all they can ever do is show just how good those people are.

With thanks to David Saltman!
