Yep, here we go. No arrest.
Correct...the news agencies are now saying no arrest.

No he's not (sorry, couldn't resist it)

CNN is now saying there are conflicting reports. Can't find info about the news conference.

An early poll entry?

It doesn't help that I keep reading his user name as MaryandNed.


I just hope they catch the bombers. I'm thinking nobody can pick an argument with that.

It's all a bit alarming. The only thing agreed on is that they now have suspects. All too eager to be the first with the news rather than correct.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Same here.

Agreed...but I'm sure someone will be able to.

Off Topic - Jersey girl, is there a "punch you in your throat" smiley? I'd like one of those.

And the Black male suspect as reported by CNN is now a white male.

They aren't going to be feeling too good about this screen grab where they have the suspect and being arrested and not on the same page.

I keep flashing back to "The Newsroom" and wanting to hear what Will McAvoy has to say on the subject.

I know we've mentioned before about getting our news from the Comedy Channel, but it's another step altogether to want it from a fictional tv character.
