18. It was on the front of EVERY newpaper in NYC yesterday
(NYT, NY Post, NYDN)

Also, NYC on edge is very much overkill. Baghdad is on edge, NYC not so much. (I was in NYC yesterday and have a daughter living there - people are waiting for the full story to come out. Clearly the cops reacted in a very strange manner - even overreaction is far too weak to describe this. The story simply makes no sense.
