    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Pacers are in Boston right now. They were apparently a few blocks away.

    22 injured, 2 dead so far according to Boston Police.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    I swear CBS national keeps showing a clip that shows a lady trying to sit up who has a stake in her head. It is only a split second, but I am pretty sure that is what it is.

    Considering NY Post is reporting that BPD has detained a 20 year Saudi national who was injured..... this isn't good.

    the Post is a rag

    http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.co...e-been-made-in
    A spokesperson for the Boston Police Department said no suspects have been taken into custody yet after the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

    "At this time, we haven't been notified of any arrests or anyone apprehended," the spokesperson said.

    The New York Post reported that a "Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast" has been identified as "a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing." The Boston PD spokesperson did not confirm that report.

    "Honestly, I don't know where they're getting their information from, but it didn't come from us," said the spokesperson.

    I doubt the Post just made the story up so someone had to give it to them. And the official denial isn't exactly a denial per se'. I suspect that the Boston PD spokesperson is playing a word game with the denial. They probably have their eye on a 'person of interest' in the hospital and are running some checks on him. But, he's not been 'apprehended' nor is he technically 'detained'... just yet. Although I bet if he tried to leave the hospital he would be detained. At least until they find something that clears him. And wherever the post got their information it wasn't 'officially' from the Boston PD (or atleast as far as the spokesperson knows so can claim a plausible denial).... but that doesn't mean it wasn't a leak from the PD, FD, or someone at the hospital.... or a higher up government official....
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    It's kinda sad that being a Saudi national injured by a bomb automatically makes you a suspect...
