(New York-WABC, September 20, 2004) — Breaking news concerning President Bush's visit to New York. Eyewitness News is told that there has been a credible threat against the president Monday.

From the AP: The News in Photographs The Day's Top 25 Stories- NY, NJ, CT, US, Entertainment Your Hourly Forecast

Eyewitness News' political reporter Dave Evans says the first sign of something going on came when security around the president's visit got even tighter than usual.

He says authorities are looking for a 55-year-old man named Lawrence J. Ward in connection with the reported attempt on the president's life.

Ward is said to be driving a blue Toyota sedan with a New York license plate: BRF-6596.

Seventh Avenue is blocked off because of the incident.

We'll have the latest here as it's available and on Eyewitness News tonight.

Was this an actual attempt, or a threat? I mean, did he actually try something?

Search of this guy shows nothing useful. Possible phone number, but I won't post that since it might be the wrong guy.

It would help if Old Media would actually report on this during their evening news, complete with a pic of the guy and his car.

It is public information, not an invasion of privacy.

It's not as if he looked at Larry Ward's medical records and credit card info.

From the doc you linked to:

This is to certify that this document is printed in 12-point typeface in compliance with §§ 84-5, 84-6 and that the font is Ariel.

Hmmmmm....

From your link: Obviously, the court will go on until I am destroyed. I have nothing to lose by being as candid as I like. So here is the "cross petition" I have filed with the Connecticut Supreme court.

You can add the media to that list. Unlike the Clinton haters who were continually marginalized as kooks and part of the vast right wing conspiracy, the media has practically legitimized these grievances.

When you have filmakers, authors, academia, celebrities and journalist (hi Dan) all partaking in this vitriolic hatred...all given wide exposure, it is only a matter of time before someone thinks they are doing right thing.

Something's definitely going on. I'm at 53rd and 7th, and we got an e-mail around 5PM that the 53rd St. entrance to our building (there's also a 54th St. entrance) is closed until 7:30 -- no reason given.
