    I have not heard about the other bombs which were placed else where which didn't detonate? Also this female DNA found on one of the bombs could it also be from one of the victims at the site of detonation?

    I saw a very touching interview on CNN regarding a U.S. citizen originally from Costa Rica who, it sounds like, was intrumental in saving the life of Jeff Bauman. We came to learn that this man lost a son in Iraq and another to suicide. I hope someone is taking care of this kind soul even to the extent of perhaps creating a fund to reward him for his heroism. – Steve from Montreal

    Anderson, I am a fan, and a psychologist (interested in trauma). I just saw your great comments an interview on the Boston bombing.

    I think it would be a very good time now for your to process some of this trauma stuff with a pro. Trauma can get to anyone.
