Presbyterians Schedule Saturday Night Mass…


Police found an “amateurish” but potentially powerful bomb that apparently began to detonate but did not explode in a smoking sport utility vehicle in Times Square, authorities said Sunday.

Thousands of tourists were cleared from the streets for 10 hours after a T-shirt vendor alerted police to the suspicious vehicle, which contained three propane tanks, fireworks, two filled 5-gallon gasoline containers, and two clocks with batteries, electrical wire and other components, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

The bomb appeared to be starting to detonate but malfunctioned, top police spokesman Paul Browne told The New York Times and Wall Street Journal.

Huzzah for that shirt vendor. With how gorgeous the weather was yesterday there were many many thousands of people there in addition to the folks going to Broadway shows.

    Apparently the bomb was near Viacom HQ.


    Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

    I wonder how many FBI agents have been tasked on the blue rinse shops in Quincy after this.
