    I've heard lots of rumors about what caused it.. I was thinking an accident was possible until they reported 2 explosions on opposite sides of the street.

    Goddamn.

    Whoever did it got past some serious shit. Cops all over the place, national guardsmen, bomb sniffing dogs and explosives detection equipment. According to the news a BDU detonated a 3rd device that was in a backpack as well.

    Prayers.

    I have a friend in Boston (he is well). He told me that there was actually two more bombs found and they are being disarmed as we speak.

    Apparently though there have been other reports of bombs going off in Boston as well (I am not sure how accurate that is).

    Sounds like two went off, controlled detonated a third, found two more and still sweeping for more. This is big.

    How else do you respond to this kind of thing if not with absolute anger and sadness? This shouldn't have happened.

    Cell service in Boston is off, from what I understand, which I mention for the benefit of those who may be trying to call loved ones right now.

    Jeph Jacques said it right

    Another thing that makes me rage is that the media loves this stuff.

    Holy shit. I usually don't pay much attention to these kinds of things, but this is just awful.
