Facebook status posted early on April 20th, 2013. After the lockdown was lifted, I went to my local bar in Allston, The Silhouette, to meet up with a friend (a journalist who had spent most of the day in Watertown). Minutes after arriving, we heard a caravan of police cars race down Brighton Avenue, sirens blaring as they raced to Watertown. Minutes later, we watched Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's capture. Returning home later that night, I felt compelled to put a link to "Roadrunner" by The Modern Lovers on Facebook. One of the greatest songs ever written about MA, it seemed like an appropriate way to mark my appreciation for a city that had gone through so much in the last week.
