EXPLOSION AT BOSTON MARATHON FINISH LINE


— Blasts near the
finish line of the Boston
Marathon killed two people
and injured more than 20
others Monday, Boston
police said.
“It felt like a huge cannon,”
a witness told CNN about
one of the blasts.
The marathon itself, on its
Facebook page, referred to
the blasts as bombs.
Authorities did not say
immediately what caused
the explosions.
Massachusetts General
Hospital said it was treating
19 injured people; Tufts
Medical Center reported
that it was treating nine
people. Combined, that
brings the number of
injured to at least 28. Police
reported 22 people injured.
(CNN)
The explosions sent smoke
billowing into the air at
Copley Square, turning a
site of celebration into a
mess of destruction.
Crowds had gathered in the
area to watch the runners.
Out of an abundance of
caution, the Lenox Hotel
was evacuated, the Boston
Globe reported, as
authorities looked into
possible security concerns.
“We are currently in
contact with federal, state
and city officials,”
Massachusetts Gov. Deval
Patrick wrote on Twitter.
Other cities, including New
York and Washington,
tightened security as a
result. Following standard
protocol, the White House
cleared out an area in front
of the West Wing.
“If you see something, say
something,” Mark Boughton,
mayor of Canbury,
Connecticut, wrote on
Twitter. “All cities will be on
a heightened state of
alertness per Homeland
Security protocols.”
Mike Baingon, who works at
the Atlantic Fish Company in
Boston, said an explosion
took place in front of the
restaurant and that he was
right by the front door at
the time.
The explosions occurred at
about 2:45 p.m., more than
two hours after the first of
the race’s nearly 27,000
runners had crossed the
finish line, CNN Producer
Matt Frucci reported.
The race was halted as
was subway service into
the area.
Runners east of
Massachusetts Avenue
were directed to Boston
Common; those west of
Massachusetts Avenue
were directed to Kenmore
Square, the state’s
emergency management
agency said.
Troops from the
Massachusetts National
Guard were assisting police
as well. For more updates check

But full-scale rebalancing this is not. The domestic strength will drag in more imports so the UK will not be able to rely on strong contributions from net exports to power the recovery. The consumer is driving the UK recovery for now.”

So while the mighty Yankees are reportedly scrimping, Prokhorov keeps spending. The Nets could’ve easily left the 15th roster spot open to save money, especially when each signing costs 150% more in luxury taxes.

Because of her tragic death, England’s new royal parents and their Prince George are being afforded a degree of privacy unheard of in Diana’s day. Watts, too, knows what it’s like to be famous. “I’ve had a taste of that on a minor scale. It’s felt big in my life because it’s like nothing else now. But it doesn’t match what she went through on a daily level,” says Watts. “Someone like her could not make a move without planning it within an inch of her life. It creates a lonely existence and a paranoid state of mind.”
