    I assume the Boston Marathon Bombing.

    GOTD: SCREW this cold Iowa spring. Outside trying to get broccoli and cabbage plants in the ground and it starts raining ice. SERIOUSLY? I'm chilled to the bone.

    Yeah, I am close to Boston and heard about it within about 10 minutes. There is so much shit and lies being spread around about what happened. It's so frustrating to sit here and listen to people talk about how terrible it is one second and then spread rumors the next. And saying that we should bomb whoever did this? Yeah, that's a brilliant idea. Let's tell them that what they did was OK. I AM BEING SARCASTIC.

    So what did happen? I don't trust news sources.

    This is the best news source I have found (confirmed a lot with some friends who were in Boston and spoke to people first-hand). It's mostly compilations of local sources tweeting and interviews at this ponit, but there were a lot of articles yesterday. You can put together a lot by comparing the articles.
    Live blog: Bombings at the Boston Marathon

    In short, two explosions occurred in Copley Sq (at the finish line) around 2:50PM, April 15th. This is around the time that a lot of casual runners are finishing the Marathon. The explosions occurred within 5-30 seconds of one another, within a few hundred feet. Details about the devices that caused the explosions are fuzzy at this point, but there have been reports of ball bearings taken from wounds, which absolutely indicates bombs. 3 confirmed dead, over 130 injured. Injuries vary, but the worst I have heard are that some people lost limbs. One of the victims was an 8 yr old boy, they just released information about a 2nd victim who was lived in my town (didn't know her).

    No information has been released that authorities have any idea who did this or why.

    Thank you, dear. I saw one article saying they arrested a 20 yr old arab guy, but I didnt believe it. Your info is much better.

    I am not a Bible thumper, but there are words of wisdom in there, and it has a lot to say about gossips and gossiping. Namely - don't. I feel you on this.
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

    They did search the apartment of a Saudi national, then said he was not a suspect.
