Here’s  disturbing blurb from the AP I came across today:
Federal authorities are warning law enforcement personnel of a possible terror plot against the New York City subway system during the holiday season.
An internal memo obtained by The Associated Press says the FBI has received a “plausible but unsubstantiated” report that al-Qaida terrorists in late September [...]

So tonight I had to go rent a car for Thanksgiving travel.  Unfortunately, I didn’t know that every garage in my neighborhood was going to be filled to capacity.
Where the hell did all these cars come from?  There’s no room in the garages, and there’s no room to park on the streets.  I drove around [...]

Deal Drugs on the Subway?

Or at least discuss strategies.  Yikes.
There’s two fairly large, old men that ride the subway every morning.  I see them at least a couple times a month together.  They’re already on the train when I get on, so they must live further uptown.
