RAIL-BASED TERRORISM

RAIL-BASED TERRORISM: The Washington Times has an article titled, “Boston, New York rail lines vulnerable” to terrorism, something that we noted back in May.

Back then, I wrote “I really fear that we’re going to wake up to another Madrid, only it will be in Manhattan’s Penn Station, not Spain”. And I hope (and pray) that my fears continue to be unfounded.

UPDATE: Speaking of Madrid, Hugh Hewitt had this item on his Blog on Thursday:

Today, on the floor of the United States Senate, Barbara Boxer referred to the Madrid bombings as a “rail accident.” Honest. A rail accident. Boxer is a Senate accident. What an embarassment.

I posed the question to my audience: How much money could Boxer lose in a Jeopardy game, assuming that, in her typical fashion, she obnoxiously buzzed in first every time and, also in typical fashion, she got everything wrong. The best calculation seems to be $58,000.

A rail accident??
