New York City "bomb plot".
Am I the only one who doesn't believe this whole "plot to blow up the transit tunnels" business? I mean, I'm sure some guys spoke very incautiously and got arrested for it. However, inflating this into a legitimate plot is as stupid as getting worked up over (what we've been told so far about) the Canadian "terror plot". It's more than a little frightening to know that you can be arrested for being a macho, posturing idiot. I mean, I don't like posturing idiots, but even I can see that they shouldn't be thrown in jail. The erosion of freedom of speech, even horrific speech, is troubling to me.
