Cambridge, Massachusetts Gets Back to Business

    Perhaps a sign of the relief at beginning the return to normalcy, the following message was posted on the website of the City of Cambridge less than a half hour after Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured by police in nearby Waterton where he was hiding in a boat:
A good ending to a terrible situation. Still we keep in mind the lives that were lost or severely impacted due to these horrible acts of violence. We thank our law enforcement officials for their outstanding work during this unbelieveable event. We are Cambridge and Boston strong and proud. Rubbish and recycling for those who have a Thursday & Friday collection will take place Saturday, April 20.The Apr. 20 Recycling drop center will be open normal hours. Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is cancelled. Some other city programs that were previously cancelled may resume. Please check with specific agency. MBTA service is resuming. Keep watching local media for latest updates.
     The announcement about "rubbish and recycling" without even a paragraph break is at once poignant and funny.  This town is ready for something as pedestrian as when the trash will be picked up.  Let us all pray that God grants the Boston area a restful stretch of boredom in the coming days and weeks.
