Quote to note

"You turn on the TV and you hear, 'Right wing, left wing.' I wish there were no wings. I just wish people would get along. I don't understand it and I don't pretend to. I hope that there's people way smarter than me that somehow, someday will have figured this out so stuff like this doesn't happen. It's hard enough to be an adult. Can you imagine being a little kid growing up now? It's hard. It just makes you feel bad."
-- Francona, on Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon
