Bombing/Explosions at Boston Marathon

Just breaking all over twitter, two big explosions went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Scary stuff.

Explosions at the Boston Marathon - Alexander Abad-Santos - The Atlantic Wire



Team1040 host Scott Rintoul is/was running in that marathon too, but has been reported to be safe.

Those are limbs. there are other pics showing it more clearly, including a guy with no legs.

Well I was having trouble sleeping, thought I'd check twitter one more time before going to bed. Oops.

Crazy, wonder how this is going to play out. Who does these things? And why? I don't get it. Why can't we all just get along, or at least not blow shit up. Throw out religion, believes, and all that other political bullshit!

Makes me sad. RIP to those who lost their lives, and all the best to the people and families going through hard times.

well just because they blow up a suspicious item doesnt mean its a bomb just yet
they have to look through the remains to see if it is



if it were a attack you would think they would set a device off when everyone is bunched up at the starting line waiting to begin the race

CNN was noting, there's a lot going on in Boston today: Red Sox/Fenway opening day, the Marathon, it's a state holiday (Patriots Day)...
