LIGHT AND HEAT – What I’m Thinking About Today

1. It’s Monday, April 27, 2015.

2. I’m going out on a limb and putting the snow shovels away.

3. The Nepal tragedy is an important story that would have gone little noticed in the Western world 50 years ago. The prevalence of communications satellites makes coverage of these things far easier.

4. A Boston Globe poll shows that less than 20% of Massachusetts residents support executing Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

“It seems that voters have concluded that Tsarnaev does not deserve a quick death, but rather should spend the remainder of his days in a windowless cell contemplating the heinous acts that put him there,” Frank Perullo, president of Sage Systems LLC, which conducted the poll, told the Globe. “To voters, it would seem death is too easy an escape.”

There’s a reason you think of smart when you think of Massachusetts.
