    More finishers are crossing the line later in the marathon than when the winners cross. The winners are also not normally American- if that was the target. Not to mention, having it go off later means they don't have to guess when winners will cross.

    The bomb followed by other bomb scenario immediatly made me think of Hunger Games, but then it sounded like the explosions were actually quite close together, so that probably isn't what was happening.



    A tiny bit of good news from ABC:
    4:38 pm ET: “There is no sign of any radiological material involved in the explosion,” a federal source tells ABC News.

    Same here. I can't even imagine what goes on in someone's mind that could do something like.

    This (the press conference) is the first I've heard about the JFK incident- what happened there? Were many people involved?

    The Police report that they have found other unexploded devices around the city. One was on the glass footbridge over Huntington near Copley.

    Initial report about 40 mins ago - "JFK Library official: Fire not related to marathon explosions": http://www.dotnews.com/2013/jfk-libr...arathon-attack
    The director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum says that a 3 p.m. fire inside the building's mechanical room was not caused by a device and is apparently not related to the explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line.

    Tom Putnam, the director of the JFK Library, said that the incident was confined to a mechanical room near the archive section of the library.

    Lacey, I think that's wonderful about your friend being a nurse at Mass General. She'll be a big help there.

    Holy crap, I just found out one of my cousins was there! I was able to check at http://baa.org/individual.html, though, and looks like he and his girlfriend both finished the race. Maybe that means they were out of there before the attack . . .

    The Police report they have surveillance video of a suspect - bringing multiple backpacks into the blast site.

    Thank God they found that. Don't even want to think about what might have happened if that hadn't been found.

    Lacey...My thoughts go out to your friend. My cousins were both working at John Hopkins on September 11th and they both said they *never* want to see that code on their beepers ever again.

    WARNING: Here is raw video of the explosion and immediate aftermath; watch only if you think you can bear it.

    Hear on the news that the timing was also to coincide with people leaving the Sox game.

    I am just stunned.

    NY Post reporting 12 dead. Boston Police reporting two dead. The Post is not always to be trusted, but at the same time, they do often lead other news sources.

    I fear this is Sandy Hook all over again - lots of misinformation as media outlets race to be the first to report every detail and keep people tuned into their feeds.
