    Default Reports of an explosion in Boston

    Just announced as breaking news on Newstalk. I can't see it on any online sites yet. Reportedly near the finish of the Boston Marathon.

    The Boston Marathon headquarters has been locked down after an explosion was reported near the finish line, a spokesman told Reuters.

    Multiple injuries. Dozens at least.

To such ones the modern world is nothing but betrayal and ruin.........We feel bound to disagree with these prophets of doom who are forever forecasting calamity -- as though the world's end were imminent."
