Look up images at your own risk. It's still very early, but it looks like a suicide bomber.

EDIT: Jumped to conclusions. No confirmation as to what caused the explosion.

Holy shit! This is just insane. My prayers go out to the injured and their families. I just hope there aren't any more bombs waiting to take out emergency workers.

Well that makes sense, because marathon runners are the biggest problem in the world today. :( Cowards.

I recall John McCain's words after 9/11 - "May God have mercy on their souls, because we won't."

I hope everyone is OK, except the alleged suicide bomber.

I guess I shouldn't jump to conclusions and assume it was a terrorist attack. I suppose a natural gas explosion hasn't been ruled out so I guess I'll keep watching the news.

In probably the sickest coincidence imaginable, the AP is reporting that some of the family members of the Newtown victims were sitting in a VIP section near the blasts.

I jumped to conclusions with my first post, but the official Boston Marathon twitter account is revering to the events as bombs.

Apparently police found a third unexploded bomb and performed a controlled explosion. I'm guessing we can rule out accidental gas main explosion.

All those barriers they put up are really hindering efforts to get to the injured.
