    Yes, and they didn't care who. Several children are at Boston's Children's Hospital; others are elsewhere. One of the three confirmed dead was an 8-year old. Whatever their cause or delusion, I hope they're apprehended soon.

    Let's be honest. The biggest surprise of this event is that anyone could give a crap about a marathon.

    I think April 15/Boston tea party has an obvious meaning to most Americans, and in particular the sovereign citizen types. The Boston marathon -- not so much. I think to deny that is silly.

    Doesn't mean the tax protester types did it; just that they srping to mind.

    I also heard that the JFK thing might not have been a bomb-I haven't been watching the news tonight.
    Like I said a couple pages ago I'm not commenting much on most of this because the reporting is all over the place. I read earlier not long after it happened 50 killed. It's too crazy to know the facts. Too much speculation... and speculation by what's supposed to be journalists.

    Marathons aren't really my thing but I love tradition and it means a lot to people.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It does indeed.

    It's also curious that nobody has claimed responsibility. Well oiled terrorist groups like al Qaeda immediately claim credit; that's why they do it. There is something amateurish about this whole thing, which suggests a Timothy McVeigh type.

    The Boston Marathon is actually one of the bigger publicized races.
    Boston: City of Champions. New England Patriots: 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, and 2016 Boston Red Sox: 2004, 2007 and 2013 Boston Celtics: 2008 Boston Bruins: 2011 Boston University Men's Hockey: 2008
