Happy Friday. Today is the eighteenth anniversary of the destruction of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and the deaths of 168 people, including 19 children. Three unborn babies were also murdered.

This year, as every year, but especially given the past week, I give thanks for the first responders and for first responders everywhere. Several years ago I recounted my own confusion related to first responders that day.


An amazing story out of Boston broke last night. It turns out that Jeff Bauman, one of the victims, a guy who lost both legs, helped the FBI spot the bombers. Bauman's brother told Bloomberg News: "He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, bag, saw the guy, looked right at me.

In related news, you may have heard the conspiracy theory that a Saudi suspect or witness or person of interest or whatever you want to call him was being deported because "this is the way things are done with Saudi Arabia. You dont arrest their citizens. You deport them, because they dont want them to be embarrassed." DHS says that's "one hundred percent false."

AP is claiming that a source says the suspects are from Chechnya and have been in the U.S. for one year. Ace has the rest of the overnight news on this (read it all.) The summary:

In special election news, Mark Sanford could still pull it out, but he's going to have to do it alone. I told you that the NRCC pulled out yesterday. In the afternoon, South Carolina's congressional delegation looked like it was cutting him loose too. Rep. Trey Gowdy told reporters yesterday, Ill talk to you about whatever you want to talk about but not Mark Sanford. Anything else not that. Rep. Jeff Duncan, when asked about Sanford, refused to answer. Rep. Joe Wilson said, "At least 10 to 12 of the people would have been terrific candidates. . . . Im concerned about how the primary worked out. It was just so unfortunate." Sen. Tim Scott, the man whom Sanford seeks to replace, just laughed and walked away. Oh, and Sanford is getting outspent on TV 3 to 1. He could still win; it is a red district.
