Discussion of Boston Marathon And Other Tragedies/Events At Work

Like virtually every other tragedy in recent memory, the bombs that went off at the Boston Marathon engendered zero discussion in my workplace (insurance company, about 100-150 people on my floor). Granted we're fairly busy, and I don't talk to everyone I work with, but I've been in several meetings with at least 20 people in the last 2 days, seen many others in the hallways, work discussions in and out of offices etc. Not a single word about the marathon. On one hand I suppose it could be considered a good thing - the media is doing a sufficient job driving the story into the ground - but at the same time it just seems odd to work with people so totally unaffected by tragedy. (Not a word was mentioned about Newtown, either). Is anyone else in a similar position, in that their coworkers don't seem to discuss current events very much, if at all?
