A WMRA-area runner was in the 2013 Boston Marathon, and much to friends' relief, he promptly said on Facebook: "I'm fine." He's familiar with the finish line area and his modestly self-described "little sliver of insight" about the attack has gone national.
On Monday night, public radio station websites from New England to the deep South briefly showed odd web "news" articles saying only, "Syrian Electronic Army Was Here" (see examples in our slideshow).

Tuesday night at 9pm, WMRA presents live coverage of President Obama's State of the Union Address. Join Melissa Block for in-depth analysis... and reaction from members of Congress. You'll also hear the Republicans' response to the President's speech.
WMRA will carry special coverage of the Inauguration beginning at 11am. Steve Inskeep and Audie Cornish will host live from the West Front of the U.S. Capitol Building, where the Inaugural ceremony will take place. They will be joined there by White House Correspondents Ari Shapiro and Scott Horsley. This special coverage will include President Obama's Inaugural Address, which is expected to occur at some point after 11:30am.
In addition to our live coverage in the morning, Neal Conan will host a special Talk of the Nation, focused on listener reactions to the day's events.
Former Governor Tim Kaine is running against former Republican Governor George Allen for the U.S. Senate.
Governor Kaine appeared on the campaign trail with President Obama in Charlottesville in late August, during which he said “Virginia will not go back, and the nation will not go back.” Bob asked him what Republican programs or policies he believes would do that.
