It was a wild night in the Boston area as the hunt for the two suspects behind the attacks at Monday's marathon turned into something out of an action movie. The two men have been identified as brothers of Chechnyan descent, the older of whom was killed last night in a dramatic stand off with police. Meanwhile the uncle of the two suspects spoke to the media earlier today and after calling the duo "losers", pleaded with the remaining suspect to turn himself in.
It turns out that the two men were not the two people identified on the cover of the New York Post and last night Rachel Maddow laid into the paper for its sloppy and shameful reporting.
It seems that the Boy Scouts have failed again as they are set to end their ban on gay scouts but plan on keeping their rule against gay leaders. Rio de Janeiro has become the latest Brazilian state to legalize same-sex marriage and I can't think of a more enjoyable place for a destination wedding. Republican Senator Rob Portman has seen a dip in support from Republicans since he came out in favor of marriage equality.
