I posted in North America News thread but this is shaping up to be pretty big news and worthy of it's own thread.

I know someone who ran the marathon today, just checked and I'm glad to hear he's OK.

My prayers go out to the loved ones of the fallen/injured. :-(

2. Jews
3. Buddists
4 Muslims
5 Non of the above

Is this the first terrorist attack on America since 9th November? Not including the anthrax letters sent by an FBI employee, obviously.

What happened on November 9th? I don't remember that one.

It's tax day today; maybe someone's mad about having to write a check to Uncle Sam?

Another bomb at the JFK Presidential Library and some other unexploded bombs discovered and detonated.

The guy who did it is a Saudi national and is being held under guard at a hospital. Details of why he's hospitalized are so far, unknown, or should I say, they're not telling.

well, you shouldn't already say "it's this one".
In Spain, in 2004, the government said it had been ETA who had blasted bombs in the subway, then they found out it had been some AQ crazy.

I am quoting what Boston police say, not off the top of my head.

:( So sad.

Or how I'll be saved

Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~
