They have just taken the second (the surviving) Marathon bomber away in an ambulance, found him holed up in a saran-wrapped cabin cruiser, just outside the perimeter searched today...

We can all breath now.

YEESSS!!

Great job by the police, etc. The people in Watertown, MA must be so relieved - what a long day...

Wow. Quite honestly, I learned about it here first.

Outstanding work by the authorities. I hope we're able to learn a lot from this guy.

Who knows why people choose terrorism. Who knows why some people choose to murder innocent children. There is nothing about this life on earth that is either fair or safe. Each day is a blessing. Each and every creation on this spinning ball deserves the respect and support of everyone. Boston has come a long way from it's divisive past. It is now a diverse and multicultural city of proud, tough people. Sweet Caroline never made me cry before. Dirty Water is a dumb song but it's ours'. BPD has been on 12 hour shifts with no days off. It's over for now. And we've got tickets for the Sox on Sunday. Peace out y'all. Next drink's on me. :)

This was such a mess. Such a tragedy. But then my best buddy Josh texted me.... he knew one of the victims of the bombing. One who died and another one who had his legs blown off. He and his brother both flew to Boston to attend a memorial service and see the surviving friend..... and since last night I've been getting texts from him in Watertown. It was a damn war zone and it scared the living daylights out of me. They've been locked up and under house arrest and it's been scary as HELL. As I was walking out of work today he heard all the gunfire and was then evacuated and ..... now it's over. Hallelujah!!!

We will probably never understand why. But at least THIS round of terrorism is over.

Thank GOD they got that kid. And my friends are safe.

I'm so grateful right now.

Well, it was a big deal in Texas, too. My wife and I have been watching CNN all day.

I telephoned my big Sis in Cambridge twice to check on her. At first, she didn't know what was happening and went outside to walk the dog. Her neighbors told her to go back inside and watch the TV. Good advice, it's just too bad she doesn't have a TV!

Terror won't work on Americans. Oh, we'll mess with each other about who lives in a Blue State or a Red State, or about Gun Control, but in most of us, in enough of us, there is a tough streak that comes out when it has to. When you bomb a Marathon, you are bombing the People, Us, not a Political Idea. And simply, We won't stand for it.

Hey, will you Boston area guys tell me where to donate some money, when the time comes? I know that there are some victims who need some help and want my gift to to the best place to make that happen.

+2. Well said, Harry.

Here's hoping the kid gives us some insight into why he and his brother felt the need to kill and maim people. If they wanted to get a message out, so far, no one knows what it is.

The Kraft family that owns the Patriots has set a fund you can donate to on the Patriots' web page. I'm sure there will be others but that's the first one I heard about. The Krafts are honest and honorable people so you can be assured that the money will go where it's supposed to.
