    I wish you well. Keep in mind that cell phone traffic was shut down, so it could take a while to get in touch.

    Will do, best of luck.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yeah I did not have access to any pictures earlier, but now I see exactly how many people attend this event. I can not believe more were not killed that were standing along the road.

    Hopefully. We don't know when the devices were placed, though.

    but, from who??

    At the moment we don't know, could be Smurfs for all we can say. Now IF the media is correct that they have a Saudi in custody as a suspect, that tends to suggest Middle-eastern based terrorism... but the news media is so nortorious for UTTERLY wrong early reports that I'm hesistant to take that at face value.

    No the good news is it wasn't during the Sox game. Fenway is a very very crowded area and it could have been really bad because a major T stop is there, a big MBTA bus stop, Fenway obviously, BU, numerous restaurants and bars.
