The FBI has received a “plausible but unsubstantiated” report that Al Qaeda had some discussions in September about attacking our subway system. We understand why the government shares this information with the public, but for ourselves, we’d rather just not know. It’s bad enough wondering what’s up on those random days where there are mysteriously ton of cops in every subway station. It’s worse to know that next time this happens, it’s definitely not a “dry run.” [AP]
