    I guess you can't guarantee perfect security all the time. No doubt they had some.

    I'm watching CNN, have been, haven't heard that. The police conference before the POTUS came on said they hadn't found any other devices.

    It was reported on CNN - don't know if it was withdrawn, but I did hear it.

    Earlier they had stated they discovered two more devices. The back and forth has been confusing, but that's what I recall.

    Like I say, if you asked me to bet about it, I'd bet I'm wrong, since the facts are probably not what they appear to be at this moment.
    Good catch though, I hadn't clued to it being tax day. And I agree, way too early to trust the press to get things right. They're still throwing the spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks (the media).

    The 2 bombs that went off were placed at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The targets were the people that would be expected to be there, this doesn't look like a random attack to me.

    Huh, not seeing that. They've been doing phone interviews with folks who were there and splashing "It was a coordinated event" from a HS committee member.

    NM, just heard them report they heard about two unexploded devices from a congresscritter.

    Thanks for pointing that out.
