    the Marathon isn't exactly something that attracts only liberals or conservatives, democrats or Republicans.


    I believe that you just hit the nail on the head.

    UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Spotters on Roofs Before Explosions


    University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.
     
    "They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.

    Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He's been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
     
    "Evidently, I don't believe they were just having a training exercise," Stevenson said. "I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in."
    Stevenson had just finished the marathon before the explosions. Stevenson said his wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him.

    I'm trying to wage a simple guess just from where the targets were picked but honestly there isn't enough out there to even give a strong guess decent odds.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Apparently most of the injuries are lower extremity injuries so I assume the bombs were placed on the ground. Losing a foot is likely a quicker recovery than having a major torso injury I would think generically speaking.

    Although I do tend to deal with these situations with humor, I am genuinely sorry if anything I have said has caused you grief in your loss.
