There's a rather gruesome photo on twitter of that supposed person. I hope it's not real because it's a horrifying photo.

Yep. That was the photo I saw. I have actually seen it flashed as stock footage on CBS's coverage. They haven't said that about him, though. But I didn't want to post it. It is quite gruesome.

I know. This is what makes me so sad. I mean, you can't even run a marathon without feeling afraid anymore.

To me, this is looking like either a lone wacko or some domestic terrorist group like a militia. To be honest, if it was foreign terrorists I think they would have done even more damage.

I don't like that what I'm watching they are calling it a terrorist attack. No one has claimed responsibility as a group and they don't know enough about it yet. could be one of the zillion nut jobs that are running around OUR country.

Ya. I don't think this was an international incident. I have read reports of people thinking this was meant for the NY marathon that was cancelled due to Sandy. I don't buy the conspiracy. I agree in that it was one nut job who wants his/her name out there in "fame" or some domestic radical group. I can't believe the NY Post actually has "confirmed" Saudi involvement. Absolute trash.

Obama is going to address the nation in approximately 15 minutes.

This woman on ABC is awful. She keeps stressing that the runners were hurt even more because they were only wearing tee shirts and shorts. It's a bomb. No clothes will help you!

OMG Seriously? What a dimwit. So far CBS is doing pretty good coverage, but with so little know, so much is being repeated.

I think a good thing that has been confirmed to CBS from an "insider" in law enforcement is that they have picked up a bomb that was untouched and did not detonate. So that might lead them to learn things about the explosives and maybe even those behind it.

I do not mean to get political or diminish what is happening today in Boston. But I want to point out how emotionally charged we are with this, but there are countries - like Iraq - that have multiple explosions of this nature happen every day. This world is very dangerous and it is becoming a very sad reality. This world has to come together to better the lives of its billions and billions of citizens.
