“The Colbert Report,” returning from day off on Monday night, addressed the Boston Marathon bombing a day later with one of the most positive and funny opening monologues on late night television this week. “Whoever did this did not know about the people of Boston,” says host Stephen Colbert. He continued:
“A people so tough, they had to buckle their goddamn hats on. It is the cradle of the American revolution. A city that withstood an 86-year losing streak. A city that made it through the Big Dig, a construction project that backed up traffic for 16 years (I mean, there are commuters just getting home now).”
Calling the person(s) who perpetrated the bombings “cowards,” Colbert explains that Boston will not be terrorized: “They attacked the Boston Marathon. An event celebrating people who run 26 miles on their day off until their nipples are raw for fun.”

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
