From ABC News Online:
"CIA acting director John McLaughlin says warnings that terrorists are plotting "something big" against the United States are based on "very, very solid" information.
...Asked whether Americans should cancel vacation plans or stay away from Boston and New York during the conventions, Mr McLaughlin said people should go about their business."
I'm having deja vu all over again. Something big is going to happen but I should go shopping anyway. Most New Yorkers will be out of town for the convention simply because of the congestion and all those dang tourists who look up rather than straight ahead when they are walking on the streets. They haven't figured out where to allow the protesters to go either. Hopefully a safe location... just in case.
