DO you want to see the picture of the Boston Marathon runner with his leg blown to pieces? I thought you should. But then I changed my mind. Is that censorship? No. It’s an editorial call. Two people are dead. The man with his leg blown off is in a bad way. Why show it?

Two explosions have occurred near the Boston Marathon finish line. There have been a number of injuries. Many are injured.

John Ross, told the Boston Herald: “Somebody’s leg flew by my head. I gave my belt to stop the blood.”
