Wild. No - it is nasty.

2 explosions rock finish of Boston Marathon ? widespread injuries reported - U.S. News

Thoughts for those in Boston. Here is the explosion as it happened.

You can see the concussive wave. You can see how many people were engulfed in that.

Expect many dead. I am not trying to be alarmist - but that explosion is in a target rich environment and the concussive wave is nasty. Likely will not be a lot of injuries (or serious injuries) due to shrapnel - but certainly not a small bomb.

Looked to me to be slow burning in nature (not High Explosives - but more like Gun Powder or a home made bomb).

No bueno.

Lot of information flying around, take everything with a chunk of salt until things calm down, especially figures for injuries and deaths.

Glad to hear that Kat is okay - as soon as I heard I made Sarah start checking...

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check Made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in This country who no longer understand it.'

Bottom line is we never were angels...didn't try to
be. We were not related by blood, but we were brothers nevertheless...not in some sort of Hollywood way, but in a real life "no ****" kinda way.

Heartbreaking... thankfully none of my runner friends were there this year. Extra shocking when I think about yesterday when my gf and I just booked a hotel and started making arrangements for a long weekend there in early June...
