    LE needs facebook posts, tweets, pictures...anything from people who were in the area. They have to be able to collect statements some way and piece it all together.

    PLEASE-if you were in the area, please call LE with instagram, twitters, photos on facebook. If you had someone there who was txting you, tweeting you please call LE

    Two and only two explosive devices were found yesterday. No other unexploded devices were found. Over 150 people were injured, some gravely.

    He shouts out to the first responders.

    Everyone should expect continued heightened police presence-people should have heightened vigilance.

    I agree (pretty amazing that we are actually on the same side of an issue!).

    But the two trauma surgeons that I saw both said there was no shrapnel from the bombs themselves, that they only saw random debris that was blasted into wounds. Could be the zippers were from the backpack or bystander clothing.

    Any word on the man that lost both legs? It is amazing he survived at all.

    Menino is just not the right person to be speaking in public.

    It's ridiculous to me how the FBI still has not gone all the way to classify this as a terrorist event.
