    Typical terrorist. Also timed to go off when the majority of runners would be crossing the finish line.

    That second part wouldn't make much sense as a terrorist bomber would likely be targeting the crowd rather than the runners, and the crowd would have been biggest an hour and a half ago.

    The second explosion happened 10 seconds after the first, so it wasn't meant for first responders... more likely it just took the bomber 10 seconds to set the second bomb.

    If this can't be explained as a natural gas explosion or something other than planted bombs, it's going to be a long and crazy summer.

    I am doing taxes not near a TV. Could someone give me a no BS bullet point account of what is known and how many might be killed or injured and what is known about the cause, please. Thank you.

    Absolutely correct. I don't know why everyone is competing to report every stupid thing they hear. Half of it's going to be wrong anyway.

    You're not in a situation room where you knowing **** actually matters. Calm the **** down and just wait for an official report in a couple hours.
