Boston (along with Milan, St Petersburg, Osaka, Tianjin and Thessaloniki) is a sister city of my town, Melbourne.

At the same time that I was reading all of the kind words posted on behalf of the people of Boston, it's now being reported on television that they are closing in on the second suspect. Nineteen years old...unbelievable.

He's been apprehended and taken to hospital. So many questions...
