    Re: Explosions at Boston Marathon

    Fox news is confirming that there is a "person of interest" in custody... nothing about Saudi national or anything like that, but someone in custody is the report.

    that is terrifying if there are more devices waiting to be found. Prayers to all the investigators and first responders that they stay safe.

    Have to think that everything in Boston looks way more suspicious right now than it did 2 hours ago.

    Re: Explosions at Boston Marathon

    Sort of off topic, but you know what I like about CF? The fact that I can come on here and as a group information can be found and shared, and 99% of the commentary about incidents such as this is both appropriate and intelligent. Versus the typical comments at the end of any online news organization that devolve into political, racist, xenophobic, homophobic rants 5 comments in.


    "If baseball players speaking in front of Congress can be put on trial for perjury, then why shouldn't the politicians we vote for be held accountable to the same standard during their campaigns?" -Paraphrased from The Newsroom

    My thought as well. Over 1/3 of homes dont have landlines, and i bet thats higher in urban areas. They all can't dial 911 if they were to have a more 'typical' emergency.

    I lived in Chicago for about 15 years and I always had that mindset on regular days. It's why I like Ames, I don't fear being targeted randomly for crimes like this.

    I was just going to wait a bit before I blamed Middle Eastern right wing white supremacist homophobes for the attack.

    It looks like Alex Jones has already gotten himself into some hot water with some remarks about this; that didn't take long.
