Good on you, bomb squad techies. The Big Apple would like to thank you for preventing a domestic terrorist attack.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone will be blamed for it all.
Must have been a member of the TEA PARTY.../SARCASM>

The SUV was also parked next to the headquarters of Viacom.
Viacom owns Comedy Central, which aired a recent controversial episode of the animated "South Park," depicting the prophet Mohammed in a bear costume, drawing the ire of some extremists.

Mexicans or Muslims?
Some ELF nutcase? Or liberal gone wacky cause bambi said we could drill?
First we get this:
Two female cops patrolling the area noticed a man fumbling with something in the back of a Nissan SUV parked on the southwest corner of 45th St. and Broadway about 7 p.m. The man saw the officers looking and took off running.
The two cops went to the car and saw smoke, clusters of canisters and heard something fizzing, a source said. The quick-acting cops called for backup, and the bomb squad was on the way as the Crossroads of the World was evacuated.
"It looks as if the perp was trying to light it up, and was interrupted by the cops, panicked and took off," a law enforcement source said.
Now we get it was a mounted male officer responding to a smoking car reported by a street vendor.

And a little zing about homeland security funds.
Terrorist attack? Now watch that, we are not allowed to say that word anymore, are we????
Yep...all of us grannies are so intimidating.
Mexicans or Muslims?
A year ago I would have accused you of racism.
