I don't see this below, so I thought I'd post. The Triborough Bridge here in NYC has been closed because an abandoned rental truck, smelling of gas, has been found on the bridge. Who knows - may be nothing, but I thought it was worth the post.
NEW YORK -- New York City police are investigating a truck abandoned several yards from a toll booth near the Manhattan side of the Triborough Bridge.
Police say witnesses reported seeing a man flee the vehicle Wednesday night.
Odd time to blow up a bridge. Perhaps it’s stolen and ran out of gas.

I agree with you — just thought I’d post as the NYPD and news helicopters are hovering all over my neighborhood.

NYPD: truck abandoned about 1k ft from the Manhattn toll booth. Witnesses say its driver ran from the truck.
A tea party? This late?
Does it have pictures of Tea Bags on its side?
Did the running driver look Amish?
It has Arizona plates — must be a racial profiling truck.
HAHA, It was a picture of a 40 YO White Guy with Tea Bags on the side of the U-Haul
LOL! NY’ers voted for a Muslim 7 years after 9/11. Fools.

don’t paint us all with the same brush. A lot of good people in this city, and a lot more good people who commute in and out of it.
Another case of white man violence. Probably a Christian veteran heterosexual pro-life FREAK.
Still no statement from Obama.
