Transformer Explosion Rocks New York: Today's Cartoon

You know, I certainly hope that somebody from Homeland Security had enough sense to call the White House to let President Bush know what a "transformer" actually is, or else he may try to use this as an excuse to attack Iran, for harboring Megatron.... Then again, that probably wouldn't stop him anyway.

Just one day after an N.I.E. report indicated that "Al Qaeda" had regrouped and was again plotting against the United States, an explosion occurs in the heart of New York City (during rush hour) and not only are people immediately reminded of 9/11, but also of all their suspicions of it; which is why I am relieved that the incident wasn't anything more sinister than a ruptured steam pipe.

You see, after all that has happened in the years since 9/11, getting the public to trust the Bush Administration in the event of another "terrorist attack" on American soil may prove to be more difficult than not only capturing Osama Bin Laden, but trying to convince the world that he actually still exists.

Good one! New York! What a town!

So now we have Con Edison and terrorists to worry about.

It happened on the West side of 41st and Lexington Ave. I was like a block away in the office. At first I thought it was thunder, but it just kept going for like over 20 minutes it seemed, then I was out of the area, but they say it lasted for hours, and it was very very loud.

Very scary, the NYPD says it was not terrorism. They say it was a steam explosion. Smoke and steam went up over the 45th floor. There was no black smoke like a fire though. Out the window I saw people running from the area. It was pretty scary, I was positive while in the area that it was terrorism.

There are pictures of a big craterish hole in the middle of the street with a red tow truck sitting in the hole. Terrorists would have had to go under the street to plant some bomb there. That's not the way they would have done it. We all can think of much more effective and easier ways, and better places.

It happened right around the corner from one of the biggest creators of traffic congestion in NYC.

Will Mayor Bloomberg do anything about Park Ave. being blocked off at 42nd street?

I think Mayor Nanny Bloomie is a very arrogant man. I also highly doubt he rides the subway that much. He's the mayor, I want someone driving him around so he can work and make calls and stuff. New Yorkers shouldn't want him wasting all that time on the subway.

We all have to wonder what Bloomberg is really thinking of with this congestion pricing tax scheme. Maybe he mostly just wants a new tax. Just wrap it up in ‘concern for the environment’, and then people can just demonize those who oppose it.

If he cares so much about traffic jams, congestion and air pollution, why does he let Park Avenue be blocked off? Why doesn’t he do anything about that?

It's true, Pershing Square Restaurant blocks Park Avenue going South at 42nd St. for about 12 hours a day/5 months of the year! This Causes Massive Congestion and Air Pollution!

But apparently it does not bother NYC’s Nanny-in-Chief Mike “Congestion Pricing Tax” Bloomberg?

It certainly supports his claim that the city is hugely congested.
