Quote Of The Day
“At a hospital, Bauman, a 27-year-old college dropout who was working at Costco and living with his mother, had his legs amputated at the knees (after the Boston attack) … Because he lost his legs, Bauman received $3 million: $2.2 million from the One Fund Boston and at least $800,000 in donations. He got a book deal. He hung out with James Taylor and learned pitches from Pedro Martinez. Strangers asked for his autograph.”
