    Good luck man. The friend definitely needs to be checked out because if she suffered any of the concussion from the blast she could have trauma that isn't presenting yet. Hope nothing worse comes from the news though that is usually not the case. Sorry man, hope you keep getting good news on the friend side.

    I really hope this is international and not domestic, and that if it is domestic, that it isn't a conservative white gun-owner.

    Think smokeless powder. Not hard to come by, and used in a wide array of explosives and propellants.

    A sad event. Thoughts are with those who lost loved ones and those injured. It will probably be a while until the 'real' story of who, what and why comes out. Best to ignore the media for now, as the media has proven time and time again it is untrustworthy, unethical, and can't get crap right.

    all my wifes family were at the marathon today, still trying to get hold of them. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

    No Hydrogen Peroxide for the Homemade device they found.....which would make it less likely that it is AQ.

    They're saying now that the JFK Library was an electrical fire and probably not related.

    Soft targets, innocents, lots of crowd to blend into, and nationally recognized event. Not condoning it but if one wanted to make a statement it makes sense.

    I'm right there with you Higgins. It has been a rough few hours.

    I'm hearing that every inch of the space was covered by cameras, especially near the finish line, so that's good news in finding out who might have done this!
