giant Mongolian Cluster Event....

They should combine the Marathon with Easter. It is big hunt, but instead of eggs... bystanders search for colored backpacks.

Would work great - combines two occasions, and they make Easter more secular, to boot.

Well...I have the day off...so likely beer. Or perhaps a nice bottle of Pinot Noir.

Was there a pressure cooker inside it? Someone is toying with the sheeple of Boston.

If they didn’t have cameras there at this time there should be hell to pay, but I’m not holding my breath.
