    1) It was only known today that the terrorists were two young brothers from Chechnya. The world is watching because of the damage, and the unknown... is it a domestic terrorist or foreign Islamic jihadist... and now we have something in the middle. As the dead terrorist is foreign, and the younger one on the run is a US citizen. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/04/19/report-boston-marathon-bombing-suspect-in-custody-second-at-large/ 2) After the shootout, last night, (with dropping additional bombs) how should the police react? It is also still not known if there are connections to others. 3) Is a solution for people to ignore terrorism? How does that honor the victims? What kind of society do we live in if bombs going off are just another part of living? See the movie "Brazil" for an answer.
