A former Tulsan and Memorial High School graduate is in the news for an action he took following the Boston Marathon bombing. Jaimie Muehlhausen, who now lives in California, purchased the domain rights for "bostonmarathonconspiracy.com" in an effort to protect the victims and their families.

The page was white with a simple message at the top:

I bought this domain to keep some conspiracy theory kook from owning it.

Please keep the victims of this event and their families in your thoughts.

Thank you.

As a former classmate of Jaimie's, I jumped on the interview bandwagon. I found him as gracious as I remember from high school - which has been a few years for both of us.

Jaimie has been overwhelmed by the response to what he calls a simple gesture.

"I have been receiving email and messages all day from people all over the world, and they have all been positive and very thankful," he said. "I am very happy that people understood the gesture."

Though he's happy people are getting the message, he's decided to decline the many requests for interviews he's gotten from just about every major news outlet and a few talk shows.

"I truly don't want this to be about me," he said. "Ultimately it's about saving the families additional pain."
