    You might be on to something. Do Bostonians eat a lot of Boston Baked Beans ?

    I remember that explosion in Mexico. Interesting story.

    Patriots Day is a statewide holiday on which the Marathon and the Sox game takes place.

    I hope it was an accident rather than a terrorist attack-the implications of the latter are far worse. Regardless, I don't know why people are ruling terrorism out because it "doesn't make sense". The Boston Marathon is a huge event with an international crowd. It may not be the "best" target in terms of getting to the heart of the country, but given the draw and international crowd, I can certainly understand why someone would target it.

    That said, people need to calm down with their alarmist proclamations. We don't have any confirmations yet.

    The mass-murderer weapon of choice is the home-made bomb. This is another example of how banning things solves nothing.

    What a twisted thing to say. Is there something wrong with you ?

    One thing is certain, if you were in the same room with me, you wouldnt have the courage to say something like that to my face.

    Typical terrorist. Also timed to go off when the majority of runners would be crossing the finish line.
    That's basic counter-IED 101 right there.
