0 What We're Reading Today (4-16-13): Boston Marathon (UPDATED)

I have the early shift at work this morning and normally I try to toss together a "What We're Reading Today" for everyone when they wake up.  Today it's heavy on the information relating to the Boston Marathon.  Looking at my tabs now, I think everything except for one Russia Today update regarding a 7.8 earthquake in Iran is about the Marathon, different people who were there, heroes, photographs, and personal stories of people squaring themselves with a rupture in narrative.
