    I thought the same thing.
    That's why I put this thread up at once, in Chicago....

    TG it wasn't any worse, but will still like to see the finding about this event..

    We need to start a new section on Websleuths entitled: "Terrorist Attacks" they are becoming more frequent, and they are happening in all corners of the world. It would be nice if we could keep all of these reports on the attacks in one place.

    The train bombing in India --eight separate, well-coordinated, bombs targeting the first class passengers on packed trains.

    This is so sick, but it is what is happening in the world.

    Maybe one thread per country reporting all of the major terrorist atacks within that country. The Iraq thread will have mulltiple daily inputs.

    It does seem like these are trial attacks doesn't it? Or maybe since 9-11 I am just over sensitive.

    Did anyone hear about a overpass collapsing or part of it falling? I'll have to look for a link.

    Just weird stuff.

    I think this is it:

    "Big Dig collapse prompts renewed scrutiny
    By JAY LINDSAY, Associated Press Writer BOSTON - At least 12 tons of concrete collapsed onto a car in a Big Dig tunnel, fatally crushing a passenger and prompting renewed scrutiny Tuesday of a troubled highway project that is already the costliest in U.S. history. The state attorney general said he plans to treat the site as a crime scene that could lead to negligent homicide charges."

    Quick footnote..only one brother was downtown when this was happening.

    He was trying to get on a different train at that time and he said it was a mad house. Took him awhile, but he made it fine.
