rumor central

EDIT:they closed part of penn station earlier, but just amtrak.
people are jittery like i can't believe over this. i will admit, i am one of them.

what i am reading, allegedly, is that one of the people they arrested overseas admitted to being part of a bigger thing, which is why they are so uptight.

i love this town, and i hate this town, to the point of nausea.

what is really making me ill, i think, is the idea that they knew about this for two days and were "concerned that the story may damage operations" if it broke. i am all against this hollywood bullshit where you stop the bomb with three seconds left, but i'd prefer to be far the fuck away (which i can do in two days notice) in case somebody cuts the wrong fucking wire, or that barrel marked "flour" is actually full of anthrax dust and c4.

lets take this out of the terror perspective. would you call someone two days after you noticed they had a lot of smoke coming out of their back yard to make sure they knew about it, even if it might not be a fire, and could just be a leaf pile burning or something? maybe if you were the shittiest neighbor ever.

i have no patience for the bloat - i hope it doesn't fail, yet i would love to see it fail. then again, after new orleans, even abject failure doesn't seem to be able to get people off thier asses anymore. part of the reason that there are people who want to kill is is the fucking sstem putting the people in place to protect us, and the methods those protectors use. kobayashi marou anyone?

sounds llike a good idea - someone needs to work on that bubble tech from monsters inc. so we can just schwap them over anything funny looking and insta-incinerate it.

God for-fucking-bid we get comfortable! Penn Station, Metro North... no one is safe. I'm sick of this. Let's hang out this weekend and talk about how bad it all sucks but how awesome we are.

a little birdie told me that apparently a shitload of new indictments related to the whole tom delay scandal are supposed to be handed out today, and so this was announced yesterday to get the public's mind off of things. i don't know about you, but i believe it. and i can't wait to get the fuck out of this shithole city.

i should've snoozed a little longer. then i would've missed my train and could have called in another "working-from-home-due-to-terror-alerts" day. is it bad that i'm hoping something mildly bad happens to penn station so i don't have to commute for a little?

funny thing is that i didn't see any extra police or security anywhere in penn station this morning, and i was looking.

you know good and well not to trust a govt/media like ours enough about "newsbreaks!!1!!1" like this to get in any sort of tizzy about it :P

Oddly enough...
This actually makes me wish I was not in Buffalo. I think the really scary part is calling up your(or in this case my) friends who are disinclined to even read the news that IS released and giving them a heads up, only to hear the utter shock. And frankly, bern, I dunno if you agree or not, but in terms of media manipulation and Wagging of Dogs and whatnot, I think we may have passed the Event Horizon, and enterered our final descent. It seems system recovery may prove impossible, and it might be time to just wipe the HD.
