NobleHam: That's sweet, but I can't imagine why it would be necessary. The visiting runners presumably have places they were staying already, the wounded have hospitals. I suppose some might want some human hospitality, but this isn't a hurricane, no one lost their home.

TyrantII: Amos Quito: Boston residents offer up their homes to those who might need themExcept for the homeless, o'course.We're pretty good at having open shelters for those that need it. Unfortunately most of the homeless refuse because of drug addiction or metal health issues with like in other states, is horribly underfunded.Maybe you can give our statehouse some tips, eh?

Ker_Thwap: For the naysayers. My daughter was in the city, a few block from the explosions. They gathered at a friends apartment by Kenmore, they took in runners, and anyone else who appeared to need help. Fed, watered, and more importantly, allowed them access to a telephone landline and the internet, so they could contact concerned family members. Thus, some of those affected did indeed have social media access.I can't make any statements as to whether or not anyone in need make it as far as Brookline, but it's not inconceivable.
swingerofbirches: Being lonely now makes you a hero?With that offer extended, I think I'll refuse.I'm not a hero, but thank you all the same.
