    Ms. Whitney Pratt’s letter of May 2 suggesting that the Boston bombing “may” have been influenced by religious extremism and that we need to “look inward” to understand this barbarism sets a new standard for inanity. I’m sorry, Ms. Pratt, perhaps you have the answers within yourself as to why someone would cheerily set off a bomb to kill and maim innocent people and text “LOL” afterwards, but they aren’t within me or anyone I know. You state that you hope similar future tragedies can be avoided. So do I. But that isn’t going to be accomplished by making excuses for the zealots that honor their God by setting off bombs.
