  •  Seriously, even NYC wasn't this batshit (0+ / 0-)

    crazy - sure they shut down their bridges to vehicular traffic and their public transportation -but they still let their people walk around freely

    And that was after a WAY worse attack than this.

    This is just paranoia run rampant.

    Either that or Big Brother taking intrusiveness to a whole new level I didn't expect to see in this country for another 7 or 8 years at the earliest.

    •  They also weren't running a manhunt (2+ / 0-)

      since all known suspects were conveniently dead.

      That's kind of my point. Responses need to fit their situations.

      And, with this, I will cease (for now) arguing the obvious with the obdurate.

      •  I guess I should be praising the authorities (0+ / 0-)

        for not putting this lunacy into place immediately following the bombings

        Because they should have based on your criteria of the suspects being alive!

        •  that's not the criterion (2+ / 0-)

          Yes, one corollary of that is that one shouldn't mount a manhunt for dead people. But it actually isn't very hard to understand why authorities shut down the T today, but not on Sunday or any day in between -- even if you disagree, in whole or in part, with their actions today.
