    Default Boston

    Because Alpha is near Boston, and has at least one marathon runner on staff, who I assume is not injured, I have not asked yet; because of that I want to use this space to express my sympathy to all those affected by the senseless violence at the end of the race yesterday. I am also angry, but believe the best remedy for that is to do something useful closer to home.

    Let's pray this is not another International terrorism flare-up!

    Boston is the second city of the World Marathon Majors; 6 events in total.

    The London Marathon is on Sunday, followed by Berlin, Chicago and New York, later this year.

    All are ideal venues for terrorist activity ... large numbers of people, International media coverage, etc.!

    Brett Johnston who has worked at Alpha Software a long time is a triathlete. I'll bet Brett knows some of the people who were in the area. But I was on the phone to Brett on that day on other matters so we know he's OK.

    My first thought was also Brett.
    Have visited the city a number of times from England, mostly to attend Alpha Conferences but notably on vacation with my wife 4 years ago and we voted it our favourite American city and our thoughts are with all those involved.
    This time last year my youngest daughter was getting ready to run the London Marathon which was a superb event but I'm very glad she is not doing it this year.

    Indeed Bob, I have also visited the city of Boston several times, and besides the other touristic memorabilia I still get a smile back on my face when thinking of the Boston Duck Tours and the unforgettable humor of the Tour Guide (I think to remember you were there as well Bob?) ! This is a great city with great people. These are horrible acts of violence where innocent children and people are the victim. I wonder if we will ever live on a planet Earth where these things no longer occur. At these moments of great misery, there are no Americans or Europeans. At these moments we are all Bostonians !

    And we should no lose sight of the fact that this is a weekly occurrence in some parts of the world; no less tragic to those families.
