    I think that Iron&clay's comments were about the most insensitive that I have read and the DN should be ashamed for printing them. What a horrible thing to say to those familes who had loved ones killed or mamed for life. I can think of a thousand things to say to you, but the DN would not publish any of them.

    Sometimes I just don't understand the censoring at the DN. It must just depend on who is working at that particular time.

    "after the mainstream media recently showed a production of smoke clouds and amputee actors at a marathon finish line."

    You think the Boston bombing was fake? Really?

    In the US, except for self defense, nothing justifies stabbing another person. If one wants to practice sharia law or honor killings, leave the US and go back home. Presumably one comes to this country to get away from such insanity. Calling an act attempted murder is more important than protecting cultural sensitivities.

    Juan, I don't pretend to know about the culture and traditions of immigrants who only speak Farsi.

    But my thought was that their traditions and background may be the way that this father would react when he sees a red flag coming from a son who would create the conditions that would exacerbate US citizens paranoia of Iranian immigrants, you know, after the mainstream media recently showed a production of smoke clouds and amputee actors at a marathon finish line.

    I hope the son makes a full recovery and whoever is at fault, or both, chooses to change after this (whether in prison or after).

    Forgiveness and repentance are possible, even for something as serious as whatever caused this to happen. It's hard and it takes a real change in what you believe sometimes. You have to believe it's possible first, then believe it is right, then desire to work towards that goal. Sometimes we doubt that possibility in ourselves, sometimes in others who have wronged us. But it is possible. We all know right from wrong and we all choose which one we follow after.

    Yikes! Was the father trying to stop his son from doing something crazy?

    And all I can wonder is how much this episode will cost taxpayers.

    Huma Abedin, the wife of Anthony Weiner (new candidate for mayor of NYC) and chief of staff for Hillary Clinton, apeaks Farsi.
