If more of this keeps coming out, it will be amazing that more didn't happen.


NBC News twitter said more devices were found, 2 have been dismantled so far.

Cell towers shut down in Boston, that came from our Corporate Security. I think they are assuming bombs were detonated by cellphone?

I read the library was evacuated, but nothing about an explosion.

today isn't the day, but I am clueless about how a cell phone can make a bomb explode. :(

"The director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum says that a 3 p.m. fire inside the building's mechanical room was not caused by a device and is apparently not related to the explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line. "

I read the library was evacuated, but nothing about an explosion.

Apparently their was a coincidental fire at 3:00 p.m. entirely unrelated to the explosions, which forced an evacuation.

Patrick Burke ‏@BurkieYCP 34m
Holy crap, media people. even if I did have an interesting story here the idea that I would do an interview when people are dead is appaling

Paul Friesen ‏@friesensunmedia 23m
@BurkieYCP Then he better not read one single story about it.

Patrick Burke ‏@BurkieYCP 17m
**** you, Paul @friesensunmedia

I would be wary of any further reports, people are going to be "over-alert" right now.

Explosion at JFK Library has been confirmed by police after previous denial.

More possible "secondary" devices being investigated.

Police in the process of "stabalizing" the situation.

How come the NY Post is the only place confirming 12 dead when others are only 2 dead?

I believe that many will probably end up dead, but they are the only ones so far stating this.

Yeah, that's why I'm not so quick to believe them when they say the suspect has been ID'ed
