Boston bombing: Couple still strong one year after tragedy
Marc Fucarile didn't really want to go watch the Boston Marathon last year - he'd never been before and isn't keen on crowds.
But he thought it would be fun to see some old friends and he could take his five-year-old son, Gavin, along too.
His fiancee Jen Regan persuaded him they'd probably want to have a beer and Gavin shouldn't miss pre-school. He agreed. That was the last piece of luck that day.
When the first bomb went off, Mr Fucarile and his friends all rushed into the street. The second blast was about 4ft (1.2m) away from them.
He found himself on his back, one leg on fire. He tried to get his trousers off, but got third-degree burns on his hands from touching his belt buckle.
Secret US Senate report details CIA abuse
The committee's accusations against the CIA were already very serious, but if this report is correct it blows a hole in the only argument in defence of "harsh interrogation" - that ugly as it was, it saved lives.
The Post says the panel's report found such measures did not help in the hunt for Bin Laden or anything else of value, and that the CIA lied to pretend that vital evidence was obtained from prisoners after what most would consider torture, when in fact it was given freely much earlier.
Ukraine crisis: Stalin's joke sums up Obama's dilemma
Resolve but no dramatics from White House on Ukraine
President Obama did not quite say "Я киянин" -"I am a Kyivian" - to echo JFK's famous support for Berlin against Soviet might.
And there's no dramatic plan, like the airlift, to deal with the Ukrainian crisis. Instead a certain resolve from the US president, the threat of sanctions, and a slim hope of a diplomatic solution.
