Having a hot cup of chai right now, thankful that friends who work in Boston, and people I know who have run the Marathon in the recent past are all accounted for, and safe tonight.

Moment of silence in the bar of all those who lost their lives , and all those caring for the critically injured, the traumatized, and all the "first responders," and just ordinary residents of the city, and visitors to it who are helping out in this sad time.
