^ I think it's been confirmed that the thing at JFK Library was an electrical fire that is not related to the marathon incident.

Yeah they came out and confirmed that it was a fire in the new wing of the library. So yay for that. I don't think the wing is even open yet, but someone else would need to confirm that.
I'd just like to add a wee bit of personal commentary: the JFK Library and Museum is off the charts in terms of sheer awesomeness as a place to visit. I was there a couple of years ago when I visited Boston (which I also like very much) and I cannot recommend it enough. You can spend all day in a museum like that, and I pretty much did. Even if you don't drive to the city, it's easy to reach (take the T to the JFK/UMass station and then there's a shuttle bus). Everyone should go there.
