one of the great marathon races in the world. some fellow running mates of mine have run this course and loved the whole journey, run, party experience. to have someone or organisation (if an organisation is behind it) to ruin an event like this, to me, is really sick. the day is essentially a personal event, imo, and bugger all to do with politics.
my sympathies go out to the injured and their families, and the families and friends of the dead.

There were two, only two bombs. All other suspicious packages investigated were false alarms. The fire at the JFK library was a small mechanical fire, no explosion, not related to the bombings. The bombs were made from pressure cookers. The plan for this type of bomb was posted on an Al Qaeda site. Stormfront (neo-nazi group) also put the directions on their website. There are no suspects, no one has been taken into custody. A victim, 22 year old Saudi with a student visa, was a person of interest. He's been cleared of any involvement.

Three dead, about 180 injured. 13 people have had one or more limbs amputated. Most injured victims have been released from hospital.
