It's been several months since the bombings at the Boston Marathon, and still that story resonates -- for several reasons.

Count me as one of the Americans who can't get enough information about the bombings, especially the stories of the victims. I'm a runner -- I ran the Marine Corps Marathon (slowly) in Washington last year -- and I can't imagine going through such an act of violence. I ran in the Peachtree 10K last week in Atlanta, which had 60,000 runners. I have to admit to thinking about Boston while standing in downtown ATL waiting for the race to start.

This morning, I suggest getting a cup of coffee and settling in with the New York Times' excellent online piece of journalism on Jeff Bauman, the Massachusetts man whose legs were blown off in the Boston blasts. His story is overwhelming, and the Times' work is a fine example of modern journalism in 2013.
