Wait, this is news?

Boston Herald: Mechanic: Suspect was in rush for car day after bombing

The accused Marathon bombers wore expensive clothes and drove brand-new Porsches, Range Rovers and Mercedes — and were in a rush for their car the day after the bombing, , says a Cambridge auto body shop owner.

I think it's pretty safe to assume that anyone driving one of those vehicles is a dangerous psychopath who should be carefully monitored...

In related journalism notes, RT Amanda Carpenter:

The good thing about getting news from Twitter is that the bad stuff is debunked long before networks admit

RT Colin Dickey:

Reason we don't know more about Chechnya is that Putin normally kills journalists reporting on Chechnya.

And if you absolutely must follow any of the news, here's the best chronology on the Boston bombings and unfolding manhunt I've seen.

RT @MMFlint:

Frightened to think that an accomplished pianist, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was one of the bombers (according to his coach on ABC News)

Buuuuh... Wha? Because there's a Steinway in every concert hall in every city in this country, and a baby grand in most high schools? "Look out, he's got an upright, and he's not afraid to use it!"

"Oh dear god, no, not 'chopsticks'!"
