Bush ruins another holiday weekend.

This just pisses me off. With Bush's approval rating on the ropes, he does the only thing he can do; act all scary. First he gives a speech how everyone in the world wants to kill us. Then all of a sudden, an announcement comes that terrorists might bomb the subways.

What am I supposed to do with this information? I have to get on the train. I have to go to work. I have no system for spotting and detaining potential terrorists. I can't take an alternate route and avoid the river. I guess the government just wants me to know, "By the way, you may be murdered". Thanks. Duly noted.

And it's Columbus Day on Monday. Have you ever noticed every three day weekend the government tells us we might die? They used to raise the color alert until we forced them to stop it. Or stopped paying attention, I'm not sure which. But they really don't want us to relax. It's the same old 'rule by fear' tact that this administration has always taken. I guess they have yet to learn you can't stay afraid forever. Wait long enough and fear turns to anger.

The only difference in my morning commute (subway to suburban train) was 2 police officers blocking the hallway at Grand Central Station.

I did, however, hear a new "If you see something, say something" ad on the radio 3 days ago....when they first learned of the possible NYC subway targeting...

Thank you Bloomberg for making sure I keep an eye on those pesky strollers and other questionable characters clogging the MTA system.
I just hope sharks with lasers are not put on patrol next!

Thats a great idea. I want to see sharks with frickin' lasers coming out if their heads. Now that would be a terrorist deterrent.
