    Fire at @JFKLibrary mechanical room is out. All people are safe. Fire investigation u/w. No info on damage yet. Any tie-in is speculation.

    That's what I thought, too. Like, somehow the only reason that Boston was a target was because NY cancelled their marathon. Maybe too soon, dude.

    There were 12 I think from the running club too. Saw on Twitter that they are all okay.

    That's pretty damning.

    I've got the Washington Post free on my iPad; much better.

    JFK Library ‏@JFKLibrary36m
    Fire in building is out, appears to have started in the mechanical room of new building. All staff and visitors are accounted for and safe.

    JFK Library ‏@JFKLibrary35m
    Investigators are investigating. Any tie to Boston Marathon explosions is pure speculation. More information as we receive it.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Clicked on it anyway. It was so over the top it didn't register as being real to me. Felt like it was from the walking dead. Never sure things if photos like that should be published. I see they have at least blurred out his face now (that wasn't the case when I first looked at it).

    At about the 2:23 mark there appears to be a press photographer pitching in to help rather than snapping pictures. He'll probably lose his job. I guess I would be a terrible member of the media because I wouldn't be able to just stand there and watch rather than trying to help.

    @YahooForde I was 100 yards from the first explosion, after finishing the race. Friends from Des Moines & Vermont are all ok. Many are not.

    Re: Explosions at Boston Marathon

    NBC Sports tweeted that some runners crossed the finish line, and then just continued onto Massachusetts General to donate blood. Everyday heroes, if true.

    Strange how the first bomb went off by all the flags, and what they all represent.
