    It's a shame. Of course we are all concerned about the human loss but the economic impact of these incidents often goes overlooked.

    Authorities have confirmed to The Post that they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.

    The suspect — a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast — is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital.

    A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today's blast.

    Thanks for clarifying, Jason.
    That might include the library bomb. Watching the Boston PD presser now and they said there was a third explosion at a library.

    The police commissioner said no injuries were reported at the JFK library explosion ... which he said occurred after the two explosions at the race site.

    Beth Fouhy, Yahoo! News:
    Here's NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg's statement: "As law enforcement authorities investigate today's explosions in Boston, I ask all New Yorkers to keep the victims and their families in your thoughts and prayers. I have spoken with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, and the NYPD has stepped up security at strategic locations and critical infrastructure, including our subways. Some of the security steps we are taking may be noticeable, including deployment of Critical Response Vehicles and additional police personnel, and others will not be. We have 1,000 members of the NYPD assigned to counter-terrorism duties, and they - along with the entire NYPD and the investments we have made in counter-terrorism infrastructure - are being fully mobilized to protect our city."

    Horrible day. But like always, we will support our fellow citizens and those impacted by this tragedy. The sad thing is that, like Newtown, CT, you start to realize that it's almost impossible to stop a dedicated, resourceful person with a really evil plan.

    The balance of security, safety and freedom will continue to be a national conversation just as it has been since shoes started coming off at airports.

    For a little levity I think we can all agree that after this there's now a 0% chance FF2 ever goes out for a jog.

    Stay safe, chowd friends. We're thinking of you (and not with the same thoughts we usually have about you guys).

    Well..........since we're talking levity.............Has Stevie Johnson been taken in for questioning?

    Prayers for our brothers and sisters in Boston. Just had a bunch of Boston cops down here this weekend dropping off money for Sandy victims.

    No suspects. No person of interest in custody according to CNN right now.
