Lot of people speculating about a natural gas explosion. Being older than dirt, I can remember when they used to light natural gas and burn it off at the wells. We used to think it was great to go out and watch (hey there were no video games then).

Always some variety of blueish explosion. Looking at the color of that blast, I’d bet a beer that natural gas had nothing to do with it.

Now I’m hearing they are finding more devices; Boston police are pleading for people to leave the area.

Reports of body parts everywhere. Also warning of this may not be the end of this incident. Caution everyone!

Multiple bombs exploded. One other bomb found before it exploded. Multiple deaths, dismemberments. "I saw a leg fly by me." Pieces or bodies scattering the street. One in Lenox Hotel. Timed to get the most victims possible. Friend one block away from the explosions. Not hurt, thank G-d.

Gosh... who could have done it?

"Double explosions are trademark Muslim attack. The first to cause injuries. The second to kill first responders."

That or to catch those running from the first explosion.

No you aren’t loath to mention it, less than an hour since the explosions occurred and you are already spouting conspiracy BS. You couldn’t wait to get on here to “mention” it.

April 15th or tax day......

If this was a anti-government protester, he/she would have likely targeted a government building, like the IRS, Congress or some other symbol of Government.

If this is a foreign terrorist attack, then a high profile international event like the Boston Marathon would fit. There has been a lot of warnings that jahadists want to do acts of terrorism within the US. So this could be the start of that. A little too early to tell, but likely.

(sarcasm) As to immigration reform, what could possibly go wrong with opening up our boarders (/sarcasm)

Local tv stations are showing chaotic scenes.

More detonations heard in background — may be police detonating suspicious packages in the areas.

People in wheel chairs, stretchers being taken out.

Nor could it be the Earth Liberation Front, Occupy Wallstreet, Unibomber left wing types either...

Naw, couldn’t be from the left, like just about every other domestic terrorist event in our nation’s history...
