I think the bombs were made with black powder based on the amount of white smoke produced.

The latest information is that at least 176 people were injured.

We will hopefully learn more soon.

Now, I hate distance running as much as the next guy, but that's just not right.

I've been close to this before (Warrington 1993 - IRA - killed 2 children), I've looked at some of the pics including the "bad" ones.

The Police etc. need time and space to catch those responsible, and hopefully those who thought of the idea (if different).

So someone bombed the Boston marathon on Monday. On Tuesday someone mailed ricin tainted letters to politicians. And on Wednesday someone blew up a fertilizer plant.

News like this makes me shudder. There is a thin line between normal life and a catastrophy, and sometimes you just wonder: What if?

I used to live in Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands.
One sunny saturday I went to do shopping at the local mall. My neighbor was washing his car so we chatted for half an hour. Finally I arrived at the mall at noon precisely.
I did my shopping and went home.
Everything was still nice and lovely.
Because I had moved to Nieuwegein a couple of years before.
If I had done the exact same thing at the exact same time in my old home town, I would have met Tristan van der Vlis, emptying his sub machine gun on the shopping public at the mall nearest to my old home.
7 died that day including Tristan.

I have deep respect for the victims, of which I only knew one vaguely. I am not a victim myself obviously, but somehow it felt way too close for comfort.

True. Yet, if done with respect and the right mind set, there is a place for some fun even here. Like in this Dutch comic.
Some explanation is in order: The characters, Fokke & Sukke, a duck and a canary, are the proverbial bad guys, the Homer Simpsons of society.
They take a stance projecting a shimmer of reason while everyone obviously sees the fault in their logic. The pun is often aimed at something else, the NRA in this case.

Translation:
Fokke & Sukke are members of the National Bomb Association.

"Against a villain with a bomb..." "You need a cop with a bomb!"

Hope you enjoy
