Bombings in perspective

Now that the terror situation in Boston has subsided, it might be a good time to put those events into perspective.

During the same five-day period from the bombings to the second suspect's capture, there were countless war casualties, earthquakes, explosions, abortions and other tragedies. And yet coverage of the Boston bomb blasts easily eclipsed all of them combined.

This means that people either cared nothing about the other events, or they were simply victims of media manipulation.
