    Do not rush to give blood in Boston
    The Red Cross tweeted that there's is "enough blood on shelves to meet demand," following the tragedy in Boston. However, American Red Cross spokeswoman Anne Marie Borrego tells NBC News that she encourages those who want to help or give back in some way to schedule a time in the future to give blood. Most importantly, people — especially those in Boston — can help by visiting the Safe and Well website, and to "listen to local authorities."

        them) but I just scheduled a whole blood appointment tomorrow.  For a while I didn't think I could do platelets at all after my first attempt but fortunately as long as they use the single arm machines they can get a triple out of me.

        You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
