Snoopy- From my (failed) experience in engineering school, I would think most engineering types could build a bomb. Civilized society is what prevents them from doing it!
MSNBC just posted this: BREAKING NEWS: Boston suspects used carjack victim's debit card to withdraw $800 from ATM
How does one do that? I mean, did they get the PIN before letting them go? (Still am shocked they let the guy go...)

I'm just looking at the map to see where the street they are said to have lived on is. It is a few blocks from where my sister lives.

Skating Club of Boston is closed. I have many friends from there who live in the area and hope they're okay.
