This final note today: From New York City, word of a plot — a foiled plot, I should say — to blow up the New York Fed.
The FBI has arrested a 21-year-old Bangladeshi man after they say he tried to detonate what he thought was 1,000-pound bomb in a van parked outside the Fed building in Lower Manhattan. The FBI had it under control the whole time, apparently; the guy was using inert materials he’d been given by undercover FBI agents to make the bomb.
Still, scary stuff.
