    I haven't heard a report of anyone dead. I'm sure their first priority is not to contact/respond to you (see bold).

    A witness has reported seeing two unattended bags at the site of the explosion, but this is unconfirmed

    Boston's bomb squad is now on the scene

    I once had a manhole cover fly up right in front of me from an explosion in the sewer. When it came down it smashed the front end of a car bad.

    The explosion (mine) was caused by an exposed wire shorting and igniting sewer gas, so this could be anything
    Geez that sounded bad. But the sewer explosions in Guadalajara Mexico back in the 1990s were far worse. Gasoline leaked into the sewer system and set off a series of explosions that leveled a entire city block.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    That's what I heard too. Was hoping that no one else would have heard that.
