    There is one person currently in custody, but they're playing the info close to the vest.

    CNN is saying no one in custody but that they're looking for a dark-skinned or black male with a black backpack who was seen attempting to enter a secure area prior to the blasts.

    Big thumbs up to the City of Boston. I heard they were well prepared for this and had people on staff at the Hospitals and on stand by to take in the many injured.

    That said with the injuries that I'm starting to see online, I think the death toll with rise.

    Bingo!

    Sometimes terrorists or loonies pick significant dates, and sometimes they don't. Sometimes they pick govt. buildings, and sometimes they don't.

    They just reported there is one in custody and the authorities are looking for a work truck that earlier tried to gain access to the route. They further stated the injured are being questioned per procedure.

    Re: Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    I heard about this when I got home from work tonight. Things were a bit tense at our house since my wife's uncle ran in the Boston Marathon. Fortunately we found out about an hour later that he's just fine.

    My hearts go out to the people who were injured, and I hope they catch whoever did it.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
