The gist of our post was that one of the bombs may have been inside the building at 699 Boylston, based on our view that the Lenscrafter windows were blown out not in. But then, it could be that the bomb was on the sidewalk and the blast was directed more sideways along the face of the building. We just don't know. This is the kind of analysis that others are better qualified to make, and as more pictures come out showing where the injured were standing, perhaps that will become clearer. However it would still bear looking into who owns the building and we did happen to note that the location there at 699 Boylston has appeared on city documents looking to redo the storefronts and lobby entrance. The owner is One Exeter Plaza, LLC.
More information here (page 3). Evidently this building is informally called the "darth vader" building. Charming.
January 2012, the building sold for $112M, purchased by AEW Capital Management, LP.
One Exeter Plaza at Boylston and Exeter streets is 85 percent leased and its tenants include Cornerstone Research, Riverside Partners, International Data Group, Wells Fargo/Wachovia, Bank of America and Morton’s Restaurant.
Does it mean anything? We don't know. Just curious. Just looking around. Looking at pics, looking. We do think there is plenty of confusion created by having two bombs, as it will become very easy for people to make innocent mistakes which then allows other people to browbeat them. It also allows people to throw out red herrings which are then used to disparage people honestly engaged in trying to figure out what happened.
We know all people of goodwill want the perpetrators to be caught. However if the EVIDENCE points to the perpetrators being People In Position Of Authority, this puts some people of good will into a State of Cognitive Dissonance, and then they turn on the people pointing out the Unfortunate Evidence. And then the perpetrators get away with it and laugh into their palms. We have seen this movie a few times.
So we are here but mainly watching and reading with you, dear friends. Watching the gatekeepers also. And hoping that this time, for once, things will unfold just so, and the evil and their minions will accidentally impale themselves on the city of Boston. There would be a lot of justice in that sequence.
The resistance begins in your mind.
