It seems like various media outlets are reporting a "major Internet 
outage" - some going so far as to call it an "attack."

A few headlines that crossed Facebook today:

"Major internet outage hits the U.S."  (Mashable via AOL News)

"Widespread Comcast internet outage across U.S. includes Massachusetts 
customers"  (WHDH, Channel 7 News, Boston)

A couple of more detailed sources reported that issues at L3 were 
effecting Comcast, specifically.

Kind of interesting that there's been no mention here on nanog, nor have 
I personally noticed any issues (as a user or a hosting provider).

Tempest in a teapot?
