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

We have a yearly marathon here in Chicago. Could of happened here so it looks like next year the city will also have to take precautions as well.

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.
