I was visiting my daughter and grand kids so while I was aware of some of the developments in Boston, I was having a blissful, play-filled, lovey time totally free of television images. Well, we did watch Tom and Jerry and Tweety on the cartoon network Friday morning--that is like a cultural history lesson.
It was I drove home Friday evening with NPR on the car radio that I caught up with the timeline of events that had unfolded in the night and through the day. When I got home, the TV was on and the boat was being examined by a robot.
Such intense police drama--and it was all real. The technology that is available today is mind boggling. At least for a moment, the people of the Boston area could breathe a sigh of relief.
