5. They often come up with something like this near the holidays
as if a terrorist really cares about Thanksgiving, but I suppose it's a good symbolic time or something

17. WTF?? They are predicting the future.
It was unclear if Bloomberg was home at the time. His only public appearance was a 7:30 p.m. news conference at City Hall.

WTF? They can't use tenses?

13. All apologies, but NYC has been a fearful, weak, nasty place
since 9-11 and Bloomberg as Rudy Two. OWS is the first thing to make NYC seem alive and lived in since they all hid their heads in the sand so long ago.
I'm sure Bloomberg dreams of another threat, so that he has reason to shove the city back into perpetual fear. Anything to get rid of those drums!

14. Here's the video of the drum circle today, I'd love to see NY go back to normal
Guliani and Bloomberg made it safe for yuppies and reduced NYC soul by 50% as prices went up accordingly

18. NYT: Man Arrested and Charged in Bomb Plot
http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/20/man-arrest...

The authorities have arrested a man who law enforcement officials believe was planning to build and detonate a bomb in New York with government workers, returning military personnel and elected officials as the target, a person briefed on the case said on Sunday.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly of the New York Police Department, and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. were expected to announce the charges against the man at 7:30 p.m. at a news conference at City Hall.

19. It sounds like a weak threat, it used "Christmas lights" as detonator
commentator says: hmm they have been monitoring him for 2 years and why come out with it now...

I think the drum circle and OWS got to him and the police were looking very bad to the public
so scare the bejeebus out of them is the usual solution

22. Who gets to define what a "terrorist" is?
Welcome to post-9/11 America. They didn't give themselves all those new, post-9/11 laws to NOT use them, y'know?
