Subject: [Nfbmo] Boston Marathon explosions
NPR just offered a report from Peter Segel, the host of NPR's popular
"Wait,Wait, Don't Tell Me" political comedy quiz show, reporting on the
scene in Boston of what he witnessed as he and the blind runner he was
guiding (his name is William Greer in his first Marathon - both men are
fine) had just passed the finish line. The explosions took place around 3
pm EST 100
yards behind them - there are a confirmed 2 dead and many injured. No
information on the source of the explosions is available.
Those of you who are fans of Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me are familiar
with Segel's humor and take on the world, but I had never heard he had been
active in providing accompaniment for blind athletes. I"m glad they're
both safe - and hope for the speedy recovery of the injured.
