Preserving the memorial items

Teddy bear

In advance of this week's rains, the Boston City Archives began collecting mementos left at the Marathon memorial in Copley Square. The archivists took them to the archives in West Roxbury, where they've begun cataloging them. More photos.

    Dzhokhar should be forced to

    By on

    Dzhokhar should be forced to keep that teddy bear with note in his cell for the remainder of his life. It should be in such a position that he can't touch it, vandalize it, or cover it up. He should be forced to have to look at it every day. Maybe take a high resolution photo, blow it up poster size, and apply it to his cell door or something.
