    Who? This ain't exactly a kick in the nuts. Foreigners mostly win this crap. I'd care less if it was nascar or baseball but that's about it.

    Cow poop isn't noted for it's explosive properties. You are still wrong.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    Meh, I've known a lot of marathon runners who were training to attempt a run at the Boston Marathon. Most of the runners I knew were fanatics.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Neo-conservative terrorism? Unlikely. The GOP establishment (or their sponsors) is certainly able and willing to launch domestic terrorist attacks (and has the big $$ to do so) to try to scare the public into voting for more neocon pols. But Boston--a mecca of liberalism--doesn't seem like an ideal target. Disneyland/Disneyworld would've been better.

    CONCLUSION: Most likely paleo-conservative terrorist attack. Probably some right-wingers who decided to blame "librelism" for all their woes and attacked what they thought was the center of it
    This is possibly one of the most idiotic posts I've ever read

    marathon is pure sport. no real judgment calls by refs, no outspending the opposition (equestrian, motor sports)


    I note the bomb was set to avoid hitting the elite (which is mainly foreigners-most people don't travel 4000 miles to run a 5 hour marathon) but to hit the fair to middling runners-who tend to be mainly AMERICANS

    if they set the bomb for 2.10 or 2.30 they'd run the risk of killing some other country's olympians

    Maybe it was someone who hated the Patriots.
