I was going to say a gun nut since the marathon was dedicated to the Newtown victims

My prayers go out to everyone involved. This is really horrific. The photographs, video footage and news stories say it all.

Yeah I have seen some pretty horrific photos. One I think the woman in it was dead.

It's such a despicable act. I hope they catch whoever did it. There is no excuse or redemption for what they have done.

The saddest photo I saw was of a girl in her 20s who was probably dead with her boyfriend right next to her, crying.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the ones affected by this horrific tragedy.

I'm pretty sure a 3 year old died. I agree that it was likely something to do with taxes.

At this point I don't think they know who was responsible. We'll just have to wait and see. There is no point in saying it was because of guns, taxes, Muslims or whatever.

How could someone/some group do such a thing. Why can't we all just get along with each other and shake hands?

There are now times where I wonder what the future is gonna be like... In books/movies/ect it's shown as a place where we reached across the borders and shook hands, but in the moment it really doesn't look like that....

you've obviously never seen the Mad Max series.....

new information, still pointing to the right wing fringe: the propellant in the bombs was gunpowder, and the shrapnel was "tumbling media" (ball bearings and headless nails, used for cleaning shell casings to reload with new powder and bullets)

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
