  • NEW YORK (AP) - Police have cleared streets around Times Square after finding a cooler left on a sidewalk on the same block where a failed car bomb was found over the weekend.
    NYPD spokesman Paul Browne says police have created some distance between the cooler and people. He says they are "in an abundance of caution" and looking into whether the cooler was abandoned by someone.
    Browne says no buildings have been ordered evacuated. Three blocks around Times Square were closed as a precaution because the cooler was found about a block from where a failed car bomb was found Saturday night.
    No other details were immediately available. The call was received about 1:15 p.m.

    Yet the same people talk about the fact that we have no balls. Do you think "others" aren't watching this crap play out.

  • its not over reacting when a car bomb just a few days ago was found. this isn't some media frenzy it is a real threat. being over cautious could cost time and money but not being cautious enough could cost lives. just ask clinton who ignored the warnings and bush who got the blame.....
