Explosions In The News Hit Home For Boston Runner From Texas

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

This is TELL ME MORE from NPR News. I'm Michel Martin. Coming up, we'll check in with the Barbershop guys to hear what they have to say about all the news of the week.

But, first, it's only because of the kind of week that we've had that it would be possible that a major issue like the one we're about to talk about could actually fly under the radar.
