3. I have to look for a link. It was reported at least twice on local NBC
news. It is an operation called TOMS, and was to take place in I believe 76 stations.

4. I see

Train Order Maintenance Sweeps,TOMS, are deployed to arrest fare evaders and others, who's initial low level offences are often precursors of more serious crimes in the subway system. TOMS may discourage or even intercept a terrorist attack.

It was probably a report about the subway security going to defcon 2 and how successful the drills in the past were.

;-)

Same thing is happening in about all cities with a subway - all over the world.

5. Coincidence? It's raining in upstate New York.
Started yesterday afternoon. Has nothing to do with London. See the Weather Channel for more information.
