    The FBI said that as well. In the press conference today, the FBI agent said that they have video of the guy in the white hat planting the bomb, putting it in place minutes before it went off.

    I thought that they were persons of interest? But then I missed the last part of the FBI conference perhaps that is where the FBI said they were suspects. I still think that we (public) should wait until more is known before saying that these are definitely the persons who did this act.

    From the grainy enlargements I saw on the evening news, my first thought was that they might be partially disguised with false eyebrows or the like. The clothing is also bulky enough to hide one's build, and possibly well chosen to look like a couple of normal guys when in fact they may never dress like that otherwise.

    As we discussed earlier, either they are very brazen and don't care if they are recognized or caught (or greater glory when they aren't), or they have taken steps knowing they would be photographed a hundred times by tv cameras, video surveillance and cell phones.

    Well if I really put the tinfoil hat on, could they be a decoy for round two?
    What would Jenny do?

    The FBI has identified them as suspects. We will not know they are the perpetrators unless/until they confess or are tried and convicted. Its a tough one as I noted above, the FBI has determined they have enough information to try to bring these guys in and need the public's help so they've gone public. If these are not the perpetrators it could be a terrible injustice, but the FBI can't wait for a trial and conviction before they take action.

    So it is up to the public to act responsibly and remember that these are suspects, and they remain innocent until proven guilty.
    Congratulations 2014 World Ice Dance Champions Anna Cappellini & Luca Lanotte!!!

    I haven't seen this posted here, but last night at the Bruin's first game since the bombing, the crowd gave one of the most rousing and emotional participations of The Star-Spangled Banner that I've ever seen:

    Boston Bruins-Buffalo Sabres National Anthem

    Definitely worth viewing -- Watching it, I got choked up and had tears in my eyes.

    I'm thinking that maybe no group has claimed this because they're not finished yet. I've been watching cops with machine guns and in an observation tower on the NYC waterfront all week. I've seen the machine guns from time to time before but that observation tower is a new one. Maybe it's standard precautionary measure, or maybe they know something I don't know.

    The press conference made it sound like one guy (white hat?) was filmed setting the bomb down. The other is just "person of interest" but suspect as an accomplice. They aren't sure if he was involved but think he was.

    I wondered that, too. What if this was just a test run?

    Yeah, isn't it?

    Most of my Thursday students are military vets and they are all fretting about the lack of claims of responsibility and what it means. I think they are making me paranoid.

    I saw this earlier today, and I too got teary. And that image of the Boston Strong ribbon on the ice with that hockey player standing on it, hand over his heart, just slayed me!

    It's freaking me out too - every day that whoever did this gets away with it might be giving them more confidence to try it again. There was a sense of urgency at the FBI press conference I thought; so maybe they are anxious to get these guys asap because they think this isn't the end.

    One of the poor kids the NY Post had put on their front cover is afraid to leave his house, and his dad fears for his family:

    Is the guy in the white cap on a cell phone in the second to last picture on the FBI site. (First link of suspects)?

    I guess the assumption is that two bombs, two guys, that's it. But you are right, there could have been others in the crowd observing etc, or waiting back home until the next wave.

    I'd like to think it's like we see on tv and in books - that the FBI has some profiling capability, and that they have a few more clues they are holding back and they have a better handle on the situation than the rest of us do. I'd like to think that they have reason to believe it's a contained situation, and finding these two guys will either be the end of it, or lead them to whoever else might be involved.

    Then catching two of them is a good step toward catching more of them.

    Maybe. But what if they don't get caught any time soon? Maybe I'm paranoid, too, but I walk through Ground Zero twice a day.

    I do think the heightened security now will make it much harder for another attack to be carried out anytime soon.
