Monday/ a dark day

It was a dark Monday here in the USA with the events that unfolded in Boston.  There was blanket coverage on the major networks all evening following the bomb explosions at the finish line of the Boston marathon today.  At this point it seems any person or group could be responsible.  Commentators today mentioned ‘that we live in a 9/11 world now’ several times .. but others pointed out that we have had these kinds of attacks from home-grown terrorists/ extremists as far back as 1995 with the Oklahoma City bombing, and in 1996 with the Atlanta Olympics bombing.

Here’s an aerial view of the locations of the bomb blasts at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, from the on-line edition of the USA Today.
