Captured

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev

I really don’t have anything to add. This 19-year-old male was captured.

From Boston.com:

Four days after two deadly explosions turned the finish line of the Boston Marathon into a scene of bloody chaos, the 19-year-old college student believed to be responsible for placing the bombs was taken into custody Friday night, bringing a sense of relief and justice to a shaken region.

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev of Cambridge was pulled from his hiding place in a boat parked behind a house on Franklin Street shortly before 8:45 p.m. Friday in this community just outside Boston.

“We are eternally grateful for the outcome here tonight. We have a suspect in custody,” said Colonel Timothy Alben, commander of the State Police. “We’re so grateful to bring justice and closure to this case.”

“It’s a night where I think we’re all going to rest easy,” Governor Deval Patrick said at a news conference with a host of other officials in Watertown.

Here are some of the great tweets that are flying around the internets!! The best was from the Boston Police Department.

Nemo is smacking the East Coast

Big bad Nemo

So here comes Nemo.

From NYT:

As the temperatures across the region dropped, roads became increasingly treacherous and utility companies moved thousands of crews into place to deal with the possibility of widespread power outages.

Throughout the day, which for many was a rainy sloshy mess, people rushed to stores to stock up on supplies, drivers lined up at gas stations to fill their tanks and local authorities from New York City to Maine activated their plans to battle the snow as it began to pile up.

With the storm moving up the East and the worst weather not expected until Friday night, Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts took the unusual step of banning all cars from the roads in the state starting at 4 p.m. The governor of Connecticut, Dannel P. Malloy, also ordered all but emergency vehicles off the state’s highways.

An MD appointed to Senate? Maybe.

This could be very beneficial for the healthcare debate.

From TP:

Next week, the Massachusetts state senate is expected to pass legislation giving Gov. Deval Patrick the authority to appoint a temporary successor to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. The interim appointee would serve until the Jan. 19 special election.

Clearly, whomever Gov. Patrick decides to appoint will have a significant role to play in the health care debate over the coming months. It is for that reason we at the Center for American Progress Action Fund believe that Dr. Atul Gawande would be best choice for the job.

Dr. Gawande is a surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School, and has written extensively on medicine for The New Yorker. An articulate and eloquent speaker on health matters, Dr. Gawande is a former Rhodes Scholar, a MacArthur Fellow, and unquestionably one of the nation’s leading health policy experts.

President Obama has told his staff that Dr. Gawande’s writings are “required reading” in the White House. Dr. Gawande has written extensively on sustaining health care reform and lowering health care costs over the long term. He previously worked for Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) and the 1992 Clinton presidential campaign, and he served on Clinton Health Care Task Force.
