Congrats on the new phone!!!

There's a THIRD suspect?? I've been monitoring the news all morning and didn't hear about a third suspect---just the 20-year-old who was killed and the 19-year-old they're looking for. Although we have been wondering what became of the driver of the hijacked car, who escaped.

I guess they are saying the third suspect that they stopped the train in Connecticut to look for is a false alarm. So much news swirling my head is spinning.

That's good, then---only one guy to find.

I've been following the live news blog on Boston.com. Watertown Police said that the situation could continue into the weekend before it's under control.

Reporters contacted the bombers' father in Russia. He claims his boys are innocent, he's furious that the older boy was killed, and if the second boy dies, "all hell will break loose."

Saw video of a deserted Allston intersection. Bizarre. I don't know if businesses are open around here. I assume they are. But I don't have any particular need to venture out, so I'd just as soon stay put in the house with Mr.
