    Officials have already said they will expand the field for next year to account for the increase in runners.

    And a little levity with a lot of truth.

      there is always a chance that you will get hit by a car, construction accedent, assault, natural event, fire.......

      we have penty of wackos, that strike a lot more often than any islamist. and when we fly, i worry more about mechanical condition of the planes, than any terrorist attack, with budget cuts, and neglegent idiots, a lot more planes went down due to mech. problems.
      My sentiment exactly.

      I don't believe plane hijacking will ever happen inside USA again, future hijackers will know in advance that all passengers + crew will fight them back to the last person because no one will believe that plane is going to land again. Air Marshal in disguise will be another decisive factor.

            No...we Bostonians tend to drop our "r's"

            So it sounds like CAHR for car, SMAHT for Smart, HAHD for hard.

            Just watch the movie The Depahted...err, The Departed.

            We also say something is wicked or pissah instead of good or great. And if its wicked pissah....its frickin' awesome!

            And classy move, Yankees! Thanks

                  Reports that a suspect is either in custody or about to be.

                  If so, nice work all.

                    Suspect Identified in Boston Marathon Blasts
                    Updated April 17, 2013

                    By EVAN PEREZ, DEVLIN BARRETT and ANDREW GROSSMAN

                    BOSTON—A suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has been identified and will be arrested, a law-enforcement official briefed on the investigation told the Associated Press. The official said the suspect is to be taken into custody by federal marshals and taken to a Boston courthouse, the AP said. The Wall Street Journal couldn't immediately verify the report independently. The Federal Bureau of Investigation had isolated images of what it believed to be a suspect in the bombings, according to a government official. Surveillance video and other images helped FBI agents identify a suspicious person right around the moment one of the bags believed to contain a bomb was deposited near the finish line of the race, the official said.

                          • News stories keep changing. Not sure if there was an arrest or not, and LA Times reporting 2 suspects now.

                            Update: Videos point to 2 suspects in Boston Marathon bombing - latimes.com

                              All big US cities should organize marathons to run for who could not run again and to show whoever did this that Americans are not afraid of them.

                                As it turns out, no suspects.
