I hope everyone caught that RayRon’s name is Reagan Ronald.
#MindyMixer is trending, nice job everyone!
Just did an ab workout and now I hate everything. On the plus side (besides my stomach HEY OHHH), The Mindy Project starts in 15 minutes!
Earlier today, we were all like….
But after hearing the news about The Maya Rudolph Show, we’re all like…
Congratulations on The Maya Rudolph Show getting an airdate, Maya! You know we’ll be watching. Everybody be sure to watch the premiere on May 19 at 10pm ET/PT, and you might just see some familiar faces (Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen and Chris Parnell, among others)…
Obit of the Day: Martin Richard, age 8
Martin Richard was one of three people killed in the bombing at the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15, 2013. Martin’s sister Jane, 7, and his mother, Denise, were injured. Mrs. Richard works at Neighborhood House Charter School in the school’s library. It was also the school Martin attended.
Martin’s older brother, Henry, was not injured and neither was Martin’s father, William Richard. Mr. Richard was a runner but was not running in this year’s marathon which led to some mis-reporting that he was actually participating in the race.
Mr. Richard was a community leader in Dorchester at one time serving as president of the board of directors for the St. Mark’s Main Street Area, a civic improvement project for the city.
Here is a statement released by Mr. Martin:
“My dear son Martin has died from injuries sustained in the attack on Boston. My wife and daughter are both recovering from serious injuries. We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin. We also ask for your patience and for privacy as we work to simultaneously grieve and recover. Thank you.”

The other two people killed in the blast have not been named by authorities.
Posted originally one year ago there are some updates to the post:
- Jane Richard, 7, lost her leg in the blast while her mother, Denise, lost her eye.
- Wiliam Richard Martin ruptured both eardrums.
- Henry, 11, suffered cuts and bruises but “was hurt in his heart” according to Jane.
Martin Richard was the youngest person to die that afternoon. The two other individuals killed by the two pressure cooker bombs were Krystle Marie Campbell, age 29, a restaurant manager and Lu Lingzi, age 23, a Boston University graduate student. More than 260 others were injured by the blasts.
Sean Collier, age 27, was killed later that night while on duty as an MIT police officer. He was shot several times whiel sitting his patrol car, allegedly by the Tsarnaev brothers.

mike birbiglia is such a precious part of the world we need to love him and appreciate him and shelter him from all that might harm him
That’s the problem with heartbreak, to you it’s like an atomic bomb, and to the world it’s just really cliché, because in the end we all have the same experience
