Two relatives of a close coworker were caught in the first blast and both have lost legs. One is in stable condition while the other remains in critical condition.

The bomb squad did a sweep one hour before runners started coming through and came up with nothing. I hope this will help frame the timeline for authorities in looking at surveillance videos to catch the perpetrator(s).

I had 2 friends that finished right at the 4:08-4:09 mark and said they saw the blasts over their shoulders as they stood with their families/loved ones. It's a very muted and sad day here in Boston. I'm still amazed at the lack of loss of life given the dense conditions. Having trauma trained medical professionals at the finish line most certainly helped.

I made sure to squeeze my wife and boys a bit tighter today in leaving for work. We're a resilient and close knit town so I'm sure we'll get through this but it won't make the grieving any easier.

Your mind can play terrible games with you as you lay in bed. I don't know how many different scenarios I came up with in my head as to what would have put me closer to the blasts.

realizing I have 30+ active keybinds in my tanking spec kinda pisses me off.

I just lost a long time friend over this Boston Bombing stuff. She posted some shit about how this is just another example of how the citizens are defenseless in the gun grab that she swears is happening as we speak.

I responded with: Yes. Clearly, a loaded firearm would have stopped those bombs.

And that was that. I've been unfriended, blocked, and I just got a text telling me that I'm a Sheep, primed for slaughter by that ***** in the white house.
Ugh. I swear I thought I had smarter friends than this.

Just remember the UN Treaty reaffirming a sovereign nation's right to have enforce and have their own laws regarding firearms is a direct step towards the UN takeover of the United States.

I had a cousin who posted how we should round up all the Muslims in the US and execute them to show the rest of the world we don't want their kind here.

It turns out that my wife is a big fan of the late Margaret Thatcher.

Just saw what happened to the leg of one of the people injured in the bombing. The terms used by the media, "lost limb" and such, do not begin to describe what happened.

I shouldn't laugh, as what happened yesterday is horrible on many levels, and it's even less good that you lost a friend over this, but you're dead right.

The hell would a loaded gun have helped in that situation? You going to shoot the shrapnel out of the air?

You're a terrible person for making me a terrible person. :x

I had this image of Shoju's troll DK with a gun, yelling "PULL, MON!" and shooting the shrapnel.

I </3 you.

I have so much family wailing, gnashing teeth and beating their chests because "DER GERBMENT TURKIN MER GURNS"

I often wonder how the hell I turned out as liberal as I have considering the stock I descend from...

I've not seen anything about the 4th at all.

8 year old boy, 29 year old woman, and a graduate student from China whose info is unknown at family request. Do you have any sources to cite?
