Moving on Already?

I have seen two columns talking about how we have already moved on from the horrific bombings in Boston. Granted the number of dead is fewer than some killed in mass gun-related killings but are we really ready to move on after a day? What's going on?

I suspect that part of it is that the left hasn't been able to make an object lesson of it yet. The Sandy Hook shooting is still being used to advance unrelated gun-control measures. The Giffords shooting was originally used to tarnish Sarah Palin and is currently being used as an additional push for gun-control. Those incidents are being kept alive because they are politically useful.

So far there is nothing in the Boston bombing that can be used to advance an agenda. It can't even be blamed on global warming. So we are moving on.
