Federal, state and local investigators are in the initial stages of tracking down the person or persons responsible for two bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15 that killed three people and wounded over 100, but said no one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The latest details to emerge from the afternoon of chaos in the city included news that the bombs  -- which were stuffed in trashcans near the race route  -- contained ball bearings or BBs meant to cause even more substantial injuries to bystanders.

The eleventh hour of the eleventh month of the eleventh year

A moment of silence was observed around the country this morning. During these precious minutes, families, neighbors, and friends remembered those who are serving and have served our nation. This tradition began after World War I, the war that was supposed to end all wars. It didn't. For the past thirteen years, U.S military personnel fought insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of Americans died, and billions of U.S. tax-payer dollars were spent on bloody battles.

Veterans Day and cybersecurity

November 11, 2014 -- As Veterans’ Day approaches, I have a couple of thoughts. First, I’m thankful for all of the sacrifices our Veterans have made, that in so many ways it is difficult for many to understand or even discuss. But I also want to thank all of the families and friends who through good and bad have been there for our Veterans, both during active duty and afterwards. Without the strength, support, love and friendship -- our Veterans would have an even more difficult time succeeding in their endeavors.
