I can't imagine this was not deliberate. It sounds like there were multiple explosions and they were synchronized.

yeah I just saw that, wtf dude. now i understand why sometimes on the news they're run a story of a family adopting a sick dog or something, cause it's a heart warming story. and because 90% of the news and sh!t that goes on these days is just such tragedy and horrible stuff.

Thanks, yeah, appreciate that. No, she is fine....we just talked on the phone. Sounds as though her office is being evacuated. I told her NOT to go out the front/main exit onto Boylston, who knows what else could happen......so sad.
