    Yep...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials have received a credible but unconfirmed terror
    threat having to do with New York or Washington.
    A counterterrorism official tells The Associated Press that law enforcement
    officials have been investigating the intelligence since it was received
    late Wednesday night. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to
    discuss sensitive security information.
    The counterterrorism official says the information in the threat is so
    specific and comes just days before the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks
    that it could not be ignored.
    Security measures around the country, including in New York and Washington,
    have been enhanced in the weeks leading up to the anniversary.
    Homeland Security Department spokesman Matt Chandler described the threat as
    specific and credible but unconfirmed. He did not release any information
    about potential targets.

    They interrupted the local broadcast of the Packers Saints game to show an announcement by Mayor Bloomberg, so I think they know it's a NYC threat. The newsman also stated that it's a couple of individuals who want to drive car bombs into a bridge or building.

    I wouldn't be surprised, but I also think that this is the most difficult time for an attack because everyone will be on high alert this weekend. After 9/11 there were armed National Guardsmen everywhere, police everywhere and you couldn't go to the bathroom without getting patted down.

    Let us know how you made out. My Mom is staying in NJ instead of visiting us this weekend because of the traffic concerns.

    You should have wrapped a towel around your head before driving in.

    Post some pics if you go. We were on the Sound today but didn't see them. Maybe too early though, around 730.

    With a towel on your head, they would have left you alone. Lest they be accused of racial profiling..................
