After (figuratively) holding our breaths for many hours, I think we are all coming to the realization that “answers” about the Boston bombings may not emerge for a long time. So life goes on, though not without continued reflection on yesterday’s tragedy.

* At TNR, Lydia DePillis makes case marathons are the kind of event it’s impossible to completely make secure.
* Despite canceled press conference, Senate Gang of Eight to introduce legislation today (TPM has outline).
* SCOTUSblog’s Amy Howe suggests Supremes may be headed to narrow decision outlawing patents on “isolated DNA.”
