Understandable, given the current situation.

When I hear that, I always think...”They’re after someone”. That’s what happens in my town.

Somebody spilled a salt shaker and Bloomberg is ordering the area evacuated until HAZMAT teams can respond.

Good grief. New York is not the center of the universe; what goes on there is not the be-all and end-all of Life As We Know It. Besides, if it were true, Mayor Bloomgingidiot would be on all the networks compaining about the noise and the exhaust.

Not to worry, that’s just the secret service clearing the way for B.O. & M.O’s visit to the Masa Restaurant.

Yes, they are circling the island. Started off upper west, now they are over on the east. Seem to be just hovering, looking around, etc.

He has to, because right now New Yorkers are suddenly remembering they are being disarmed, and oh, yeah, criminals don’t play by the rules. The only thing Bloomberg can offer is a circus to make people comfortable and go back to sleep, because this proves he can’t protect citizens in New York any more than Boston can.

It’s tough to get a good view. Too many buildings in the way, etc. I think Black Hawk. Def not Chinook.

They are either conditioning us for a federal take over- OR there is something very nasty going on.

In the words of Feinstein- it could be homegrown terrorism (by the feds) or something from overseas that is causing this panic.

The Saudi student in custody who planted the bombs was living in New York.

Amazing how they can find these people so quick and know everything about them within minutes.

Almost like they knew he was dangerous and did nothing.

Not at all. But it gets pretty old hearing about the least little thing that happens in New York is somehow cause for international attention. I think New York is too full of itself. And for the life of me, I can’t see a damn thing New York has to be proud of. Now, by New York I’m referring to the city. Upstate is an entirely different matter, and for the most part I like upstate New York.

”They’re after someone”

They have to find the white, Christian, heterosexual, “bitter clinger” responsible before the president calls it terrorism.

Maybe it’s unrelated but a very loud, low-flying plane flew over northeastern Massachusetts about an hour ago - in the Merrimack Valley area.

Thanks for those kind words. I live here, and most of my family lives here. I would really prefer not to be blown up, but with loving people like you out there wishing for my home to be annihilated, I have nothing to fear.

Oh, and by the way, I knew people who died in the towers. They did not deserve to die. Period.

Apparently, the bomber lived here. Does that matter to you? Does the truth matter to you? No one cares about your opinion of New York.

I would only worry if I saw Hellfires hanging off the hardpoints or a zip gun sticking out of the door, or SPECOPS hanging from lines.
