    Re: Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    A federal law-enforcement source confirmed to The Post there are at least 12 dead and nearly 50 injured. Fox News reported that Massachusetts General Hospital was treating 10 people with amputated limbs and all operating rooms were on hold.

    Authorities have a identified a suspect, who is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital with shrapnel wounds.

    Well if you discount that whole anthrax thing and the DC sniper fiasco.

    They usually wait for the media to digest the casualties, a couple hours, before claiming responsibility. If it was a terrorist attack they'll likely make themselves known before evening prayer.

    There was a third uncontrolled explosion at the JFK Library per the Chief of Police briefing.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Good afternoon, goldsmith23.

    We were warned about being careful at sporting events, like stadiums full of people to watch football or baseball games, but this? This is too much!

    It's going to be days and maybe even months before the full story is known, except for casualties and the chemical trace analysis. The media will of course blather on and on and on non-stop the rest of the night, seeing how much hysteria they can generate. Ignoring it for a couple of days at least is best.

    Any favorites in the upcoming The Voice competitions?

    Homemade devices would mean their leaning more in the directions of something homegrown. CNN just said one of the Bombs hit the JFK library. Cops talking on CNN now breaking.

    The Third explosion occurred an hour ago at JFK Library separate from the Marathon.
