Shays: Skip Times Square

New York Post Online Edition: POL: SKIP TIMES SQUARE [1]

“Rep. Christopher Shays (R-Conn.) offered his regrets yesterday, telling The Post that he’d avoid the Times Square crowd because it’s a ‘tempting target’ for terrorists.
‘I wouldn’t go to Times Square. That is my opinion. It is one based on the reality that the government has declared a Code Orange,’ said Shays. “

I’m kinda torn on this one. While I understand his point, I have my doubts about it, on a number of levels. I’m curious, first of all, about the message this one sends about courage.

In any event, I’ll be at Niagara Falls tonight, myself.
