Explosion in Time Square - Back to the future

As it happens I’m headed to New York from DC in an hour where an explosion occurred doing minor damage to a Times Square recruiting office. I will be arriving in Penn Station, of course, but it will be interesting to see if there is any heightened security. Well, scratch that. Maybe it won’t be that interesting – just inconvenient. See Annie Jacobsen’s piece on Pajamas this morning. This security business isn’t easy. Flying as much as I do I tend to get riled at the long lines. But is there a better way? Again, not easy.
