More devices are being dismantled in Boston following explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. NBC News reports as many as two were found, but it's unclear as to where they were located.
Several people are injured and at least three reported deaths. There are reports that several people may have lost limbs in the blast.
Some several dozen people from the Madison area were running in the Boston Marathon.
If you know someone who was running the race, you can see when they last checked in along the course...click here
Google has also set up a person finder to locate people in the Boston area at the time of the bombing. You can search by name or provide information about someone you know. Read more here.
Thanks to Jay Timmerman for stopping by the studio today. Jay's book is called Far Distant Echo - a journey by canoe from Lake Superior to Hudson Bay.
Here's a description of the book:
"On May 26th 2008, beginning on Lake Superior, seven men embarked on an expedition by canoe to York Factory on Hudson Bay. Seventy-five days later, after paddling almost 1400 miles, negotiating one hundred rapids, and crossing eighty-five portages, two of those men completed the journey. Far Distant Echo is a story of adventure, survival, and willpower, of rising to a challenge and meeting it, and of man’s endlessly complex relationship with nature. Told through the journals of the two men who made it to the endâ€”Fred Marks, an outdoorsman who took on guiding canoe trips as his “retirement career,” and Jay Timmerman, a student finishing his masters in historyâ€”this joint travel memoir is both highly informative and deeply personal. The reader is enlightened to not only the history of the region and the exact details of how one should prepare for a trip such as this, but is also let into the most intimate details of what it took to accomplish this canoeing trekâ€”the ability to be pushed to the brink of limitatio and then to find the inner strength and determination to push beyond. Complete with maps, food lists, recipes, photos, and a well-selected collection of poetry and song, this book is for all those who, like its authors, have a great deal of love and respect for the great outdoors."
According to www.thegatewaypundit.com...
"Poll after poll shows that Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is losing to Governor Walker in the recall race. Democrats are so distraught that they've resorted to a mass "omming" at the Wisconsin Capitol building."
