re: Update: Second Boston Marathon Suspect Captured

I've always loved running Boston because the noise from the crowd really motivates you. Now I wonder what they'll do. I hope we don't lose the bands at mile 6, the Wellesley girls (ESPECIALLY the Wellesley girls), the BC and BU beer chuggers, and the people at the finish line. Their hoots and hollers really carry you through.
I also used to live 5 blocks from the finish line and passed the blast site on my way to work every day. :-(
Hopefully people make it through as best as possible and the marathon world can continue to be as close as possible to the way it was.

On the note related to the idea that they deal with the perpetrators, I think they also need to do something about the culture that "incubates" these terrorists; this applies independent of if they are foreign or domestic.

Me too. I think there are things we could do, or not do, so people won't want to attack us, but its amazing considering all that America is involved in, both foreign and domestic, that attacks here are as limited as they are. Considering our inability to not get involved in everything, it makes you appreciate the diligence of the people who are putting their entire lives in preventing these attacks as much as possible.

I just feel horrible for all the victims and their families. What a nightmare.

It's been like a punch to the gut. Almost doesn't seem real.

Yeah after seeing the photos from it, you would think it was from a movie.

It's crazy to think it was supposed to be much worse. Sad day all around. And that one of the fatalities was an 8 year old child is heartbreaking

Yeah there are a bunch of reports out there, I saw that on our local OKC news so who knows.

There is a lot of chaos/hearsay/incorrect information after something like this happens (I remember during 9/11 hearing that there was an explosion at the State Department that was untrue). Honestly, I feel with the communication we have nowadays, incorrect information travels faster.

its just media being media. they report as they hear it, I am sure there is basic fact cbecking, but they all try to get information to the air first and with the most dramatic spin.

specific numbers aren't the story, each one represents a circle of changed lives. and the fact that tbis was successful is being noted across the world. I hope they identify the groups responsible quickly.

I just watched ZD30 last night and finished thinking how bad ass our intelligence community is. I think it's why we've been fortunate to not have this happening on every corner like other paces in the world. But you can't stop them all...no matter how much man-power and money you put into it.

Meet Carlos Arredondo, The Cowboy Hat-Wearing Hero Of The Boston Marathon Bombing

I'm sure some have seen the horrific pictures of the guy being push in the wheel chair with what appears to be both legs missing and with the look of total shock on his face. The guy running next to him in the cowboy hat is Carlos Arredondo. It turns out that Carlos was pinching the artery of the guys leg shut to stop the bleeding. Not sure if the guy ended up making it but Carlos definitely gave him a chance. Thank God for people like that.
