Tomorrow never dies ?

Remember the James Bond film "Tomorrow Never Dies" where the media magnate was manufacturing "incidents" so that his media empire could cover them first and get great ratings? Two days in a row now, there's been a "big" news story when Wolf Blitzer has had his Situation thingy on CNN. Yesterday it was a non-specific threat to the NY subway, which Homeland Security hadn't even heard about, and today it was Penn Station and the Washington Monument both being evacuated. The timing of these "incidents" is uncanny when compared to CNN's Situation Room.

Being away for three weeks, I'd forgotten how paranoid Americans are. About everything.
