Today in Crazy Homeless People Attacking People in the Subway for No Reason

Commuters wait on a platform as a train arrives at a subway station in New York, November 21, 2008. The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authorithy (MTA) said that to plug a 1.2 billion USD budget gap next year, it must increase fare and toll revenues by 23 percent, which would raise an additional 670 USD million if the increase goes into effect in early June.

A 39-year-old woman was stabbed in the stomach and shoulder by a homeless woman on the 6 train as it pulled into the 59th Street and Lexington station this morning. The attack, which involved a three-to-four-inch knife, appeared to be random and unprovoked, so go ahead and continue living your life in constant fear.
