    There was a bomb that also went off at the JFK Library, just confirmed by the Boston Police Chief in a presser. No one was injured.

    Ugh, I had forgotten all about that. Add yet another awful event to April.

    I am so, so sad right now. Every day it just seems there is nothing but violence and destruction going on - not just here but worldwide.

    Some people say "Oh, the world has ALWAYS been an evil place" and yes, to some extent it has, but it just seems like in the last 20 or so years, the random violence has increased.

    That's what I keep hearing. The bombs are set up like the bombs are set "overseas" (the words used by Brian Williams). Set to go off as an initial attack and another a few seconds later to get the first responders and those fleeing the scene.

    Fucking disgusting. Homegrown or foreign, fuck them. I'm sick of the cowardly garbage in this world.

    My god, the damage and suffering that must have happened there. The sidewalk is red with blood. Just awful.

    So many school shootings and Bombing in April for sure.I told my son they should close schools in April. Fucking punks love Hitler and want to make a name for themselves. But I'm betting it's homegrown too.Those anti Government quacks.

    Supposedly ABC News had reports of a person bringing multiple backpacks into the area before the explosion.

    I still can't figure out whether the nearby JFK Library explosion and fire is supposed to be deliberate or some kind of equipment failure. It seems like the Police Chief is saying it is deliberate while the head of the library is saying it wasn't.

    An terrorism analyst said that Al Qaeda doesn't bomb based on historic calendar dates -- they bomb whenever they are ready. And for that reason it is more likely to be a homegrown terror group.

    Reports are that some runners who finished the race continued to run to Hospitals to give blood.
