Jonathan Landay of McClatchy:
The peace of a historic and festive event was shattered Monday when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people, including an 8-year-old, and injuring at least 130 more.
The near-simultaneous blasts shattered windows and sent runners and onlookers fleeing through curtains of thick gray smoke. Police and emergency personnel rushed to aid casualties lying on the blood-stained pavement. Read below the fold...

Let’s not be naive. Trapwire has nothing to do with “terrorism.” Trapwire is all about preventing a "1789" reaction when your new Libertarian overlords take away Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance and the minimum wage. Read below the fold...

Of course the artist, Scott Stantis, is a Republican whose editorial work appears in the Chicago Tribune, so he's most likely a stinking hypocrite. Still, it's a shock to see a GOPer swerving left of "our" "Democratic" President - especially on civil liberties. Read below the fold...

Susie has the latest on pervasive government surveillance. I just want to state the obvious, pervasive government surveillance did not prevent that AIDS clinic from burning. It did not protect the people of Aurora, Colorado, and it did not protect the Sikhs in Oakcreek, Wisconsin.
