    NYC Subway Threat
    Well, here's an interesting conundrum ... the subway system in NYC has been the subject of a terrorist threat. Now, I am sure it's been the subject of many terrorists threats in the past. I mean, we are New York City, and the subway system, no matter how hard we try, can't be monitored completely when it carry's 7 million passengers a day, but well, check this out:

    From CNN

    Now here's my thought: if Bloomberg went out of his way to mention it, wouldn't it be tough for an attack to be carried out? I mean, isn't everyone on the subway now going to be looking around every second? Then again, it clearly must have been/is serious if they told the city about it because no Mayor wants his city to panic and you know that that's what's gonig to happen to a percentage of the public after that announcement.

    Sigh. I don't know. This is what happens when you live in a big city I guess. Tonight I won't feel threatened going home. It's past rush hour. Tomorrow morning? Yeah probably not going to feel great about piling onto a subway train. Especially since my subway stop is the third biggest in the city.

    I don't want it to bug me. I don't want to let terrorists disrupt my daily life. But this one's hitting a bit too close to home I guess.

    Hey puts the whole baseball thing into a bit more perspective, huh? :)
