Along with millions of other Americans, the Disease Management Care Blog spent a Friday night in front of the TV, transfixed by the unfolding Boston Marathon manhunt. If it had been on the streets of Watertown, it too would have applauded the fine work of the law enforcement personnel when they successfully nabbed Mr. Tsarnaev.
But there is little to celebrate here. Two more young men were caught up in a sociopathic ideology, their victims have months of healing in front of them and America's been reminded of just how vulnerable and tough we are.
We live in an imperfect world and will be figuratively singing this hymn a long, long time.
