1. For anyone who is wondering (and doesn't follow me on Twitter or Facebook), I am fine, as is my family. I wasn't anywhere near the explosions. I might not have even known about them, except that I went online to answer a Facebook message.
2. In moments like this, I wish I had something really profound and insightful to say, but I don't. Lots of people have said profound and insightful things already. Others have said some things that are less useful. That's what happens in these moments.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost loved ones during this tragedy.
