The director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum says that a 3 p.m. fire inside the building's mechanical room was not caused by a device and is apparently not related to the explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line.
Tom Putnam, the director of the JFK Library, said that the incident was confined to a mechanical room near the archive section of the library.

Most major cities seem to have gone to a heightened state of alert, and the White House is "sort of in lock-down mode" according to CNN.
Law enforcement believes these explosions were intentional. Vice President Biden has referred to them as "bombings".

That makes me cry too.
Dammit, dammit, dammit.
Take care, Linky, going home.
I'd missed this, had been out erranding and coffeeing with Diane.
Glad there is a thread, thank you butrflynet.

Any word on Joe Nation? He was planning on running the NY Marathon before Sandy; did he take on the Boston Marathon, instead?
