Friday Fun: A Roundup Of This Week’s Political Cartoons


As the week began, all eyes were on Boston for the Boston Marathon. Among the runners were victims of last year’s bombing, which left three people dead and injured more than 260. A year ago, the Tsarnaev brothers placed bombs 210 yards apart on Boston’s Boylston Street. The bombs exploded, and screams filled the air. But on Monday, the sounds were different. “The Star-Spangled Banner” played over Boylston Street in honor of American runner Meb Keflezighi, the first American male winner of the Boston Marathon since 1983. Boston strong? Indeed.
