... but I heard this on our local news on the way into work this morning.
Eight men were arrested in Baltimore this morning. In their apartment were found fake passports and other false identification in addition to pictures of Times Square and Union Station. The men were of Moroccan, Somali, Pakistani, and Afghani nationality (there may have been others, I'm doing this from memory).
On another note... I cannot get over how much the weather this morning is so much like it was one year ago... clear, the temperature feels about the same, not much wind.

Hmm.. couldn't find it on any of the normal sights. Oh well... said I was doing it from memory.
Still kind of freaks me out. Some of the sub-humans who flew the jet into the Pentagon were living around 3 miles down the road from me. Now you got these people in Baltimore... I just know too many people who use Union Station to even think about what they might have been planning. Too close to home, again.
 
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
