Enough with marathon coverage.

I am in total agreement with the article concerning all the hype and "wallowing'' put on by the television programming in regards to the one-year anniversary of the bombing of the Boston Marathon. To take away all regular TV programming for eight hours on all channels and to constantly repeat everything over and over again is saturation at its horror.

I felt their pain when it happened. I felt the sadness for enough time afterward, but I do not need to continue to be subjected to all the horror, sadness, interviews, and news anchors going over and over again about the happening.

We are becoming a nation of tsunamis of media-induced pathos. I am not a Boston marathoner, never was, and never will be.

Enough is enough. Dianne Williamson had it perfectly right.
