    However, staying away from large public events in major cities isn't a BAD idea...
    With large crowds, how can they control something like this? Have we moved to a third world lawless country? People dead...people missing limbs? Horrible!

    the situation is SO fluid.

    the media is reacting as it usually does, going NUTS over every little tid-bit of information and asking every stupid question possible.

    No credible claims of responsibility. We are obviously tracking this. What are the odds of tracking the explosive devices?
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Not every stupid question. I'm certain there's a few no one has thought of yet. Wait. Is thought actually required to ask a stupid question?

    The miracle is that we haven't had many more of these since 9/11. Bottle bombs from car windows at outdoor cafes...timed explosives at sporting events...in shopping malls. That has been the real miracle. Finding whoever did this quickly is very important to our country.

    You forgot Fort Hood. But your suppose to forget Fort Hood, it was just violence in the workplace according to Obama as the Islamist yelled "Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar" as he murdered 13 and wounded another 30.

    Blitzer is saying NY and a couple other major Cities are beefing up security......I guess that's what he is trying to say.

    Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    Hmm, on patriots day, in boston, where the original tea party happened.

    This feels scripted to target a white "tea party" extremist that had linked up with "Alquaida".

    This is tragic, and my condolences to all victims, and I do hope that im wrong. We'll see, if there are culprits found within the next 24 hours, odds are it will be a scapegoat, there would likely be very little evidence that would be gathered without some lab work.

    That said, what would be the benefit of bombing a marathon ?!? Maybe someone pissed off because the organizers didn't allow the person to run?
