Shortly afterwards there were reports of a shooting in Watertown, which suddenly escalated with reports of automatic gunfire and suspects using hand grenades.

I knew these kind of two man or small squad attacks would come to the states. Didn’t think it’d take this long after 9/11.

I've been expecting this kind of stuff for years as well. I assumed, after witnessing how just two snipers essentially paralyzed an entire city, that the Islamists would get ideas. Just imagine three or four small teams like this operating simultaneously in every major US city. The entire country would grind to a halt.

If so, the dead had better be the terrorist bombers without one doubt.

Oh I assure you they will be, no matter what.

So we’ve got a small Mumbai going on after a small Iraq style bombing? Another good reason to have a well-armed citizenry, IMO.

Their bureau here has to keep someone awake and on London time. It’s morning there and will make their papers before we wake up.

“Apparently,” not.

FNC is reporting that these two are robbers on the run, unrelated to the Marathon Day bombings....

One is still at large.

Hopefully ammunition will go down in price now that we’ve staved off gun control for a short while.

Fox says its “carjackers” throwing explosive devices at police.

Carjackers.

Reminds of Perry Mason. Gamblers Perry they are gamblers!
