A foot race is not a "Revered sporting event" and Boston is not a "Revered city"

Football is a "Revered sporting event" and the "Medowlands" is a Revered place, like Woodstock.

Huh? Yeah, arm in arm i think. At least they looked straight but since I'm not homophobic I don't really notice. What I do pay attention to is food.$30 for a plate of in season white asparagus
With a sauce!!
Had to change planes in Poland and got felt up by a commie security broad. They still seem to have that attitude, scary.

Blame the lamestream media!! Disaster in Democratic Massachusetts that only kills 3 gets all the sympathy and attention, and the disaster that killed a multiple of that in Republican Texas gets comparatively little attention!! The liberal media doesn't care about Texas because Texas won't give up its guns!! Damn liberals!!
I'm sure you're being facetious but there is an element of truth to this.

A week from now, Boston will be chugging along. This event is not going to cripple Boston in any way. That Texas town can't say the same thing.
True. I think the difference in coverage is the way their governments reach out.

Also, having a week looking for the suspects made it almost a movie all week (but sadly real).

while Texans are probably hurting, why wasn't their government doing whatever they can (Texas state, city and local) to put it in the media as the Governor, Mayor and the FBI was doing in Boston.

The fact they are comparing their coverage to Boston makes no sense. They should be using those efforts to highlight their own troubles. Someone in Boston is probably better at PR than the people in Texas are is what I think.

I'm with the dog -- right or wrong a terrorist act will garner more attention.

Texans should quit complaining about Boston and get themselves out there via FB, press releases, stories about the residents, etc.

I would say that the Boston Marathon IS one of the top sporting events in the world. People from all over hte world come to participate and watch, and Boston absolutely is a revered city in this nation. So much history there.

I showed the Minneapolis one to three coworkers -- two from Minneapolis, the third lives there now. They all laughed and agreed with most of the new neighborhood names!
