    I wish these damn reporters would report without the added drama ... this is serious, they dont need to dramatize it. The best thing I have heard so far is how fast they turned the marathan medical tent into a triage, and praise for the first responders ... 19 people have been transported to Mass General Hospital. I am really hoping the reported injuries are not true ... one report of a woman lost her leg, and a child hurt, but didnt say what type of injury ,,,

    I was out walking listening to my talk radio show and all of a sudden they broke in around noon here Pacific time and told the horror that was happening in Boston. Now I'm home and watching on t.v. People lost limbs and children were burned. Blood everywhere. People were in shock on the ground just staring as if they couldn't speak or react to anything. They are looking of a couple guys who right before the blasts were in the area carrying extra backpacks. Now saying 50 people in hospital w/ serious injuries. People just out enjoying a nice day watching the runners and some sick freaks do the dirty deeds. I say find them and put them to death!

    Yes Cape they were so fortunate to have that tent and those experienced people right there to care for those poor people. I bet a lot of lives will be saved because of their quick reactions.

    These bombs were meant to kill a bunch of people and I sure hope they get whoever did this. They said no bomb at JFK library and that it was just a coincidence as it was a fire there.

    I keep flipping channels and they keep going back and forth on JFK ... One official claimed that it was confirmed it was connected, and on the other channel, a reporter is saying it wasnt ... I dont know what is true yet ...

    Hope no friends of yours are involved but happening right there in your state is very scary for you. They say it is definitely an act of terrorism. Hope nothing more is going to happen. They chose today as it is Patriots Day they are thinking and the big race was scheduled.
    I imagine it will take awhile to get everything straight as to what is connected and what isn't. Still saying the fire at the library was an accident in a mechanical room there. So guess these terrorists are not done w/ us and we never know what to expect. Just when things start to get back to normal they do this awful stuff again. Now what do we do?

    I think I would feel the same way if it was anywhere else ...Being only an hour away makes me worry about folks I know went ... Just wish everyone would hurry up and check in .. I swear that is one of the things I like most about Facebook ...

    The same official who earlier said JFK was related, is now saying it is NOT proven to be linked ...

    The President says we well get them and they will feel the full weight of what they did. I sure hope we do and they are some creeps that I won't have any respect for their lives when they find them and I will hope they get obliterated right off the face of this earth when they face execution. No excuse for doing this to innocent people just enjoying a day out. So sad for them all and their families. I pray no more lives will be lost from this and that those that were involved will be able to heal and still enjoy life again.

    Shit like this makes me so angry. I remember watching 9/11 for days. If bad guys want to kill bad guys, have at it, but leave the innocent out of it. It looks like one of the bombs was in a trash can per reporters, but officials wont comment on that ... really getting pissed off at the media ... still reporting that a "woman lost a leg" but now have changed the statement to "a young mother lost a leg" ... cant they just leave it that people have been seriously injured, including limb loss???

    I have faith in the Boston Police to do their best ... The Boston Police have done a lot to make Boston a safer city. Whoever did this will NOT get what most folks believe they would deserve. If caught, I place bets on a federal prision ... warm bed and 3 meals per day ...
