"On this path effort never goes to waste,
and there is no failure. Even a little effort
towards spiritual awareness will protect you
from the greatest fear." - The Bhagavad Gita

When I wake up - I usually check in with some web site to find out if a) anything has happened, terrorist-wise overnight in NYC and b) whether they (whoever they are) think something is going to happen in NYC. But I haven't been able to find a website that is dedicated to news about NYC and terrorism. So I put the link on the left which does a Google Search in the News for New York and Terrorism and that seems to give me some idea of what's going on.
If you go and search NYC government sites for info about what's going on - all in one place - well, I couldn't find it. One of the things I would like to know is this: is there any sort of siren system in the city to alert you if something has happened in case the electricity goes out? You know, like in WWII?
In other words, suppose there is some massive attack in the middle of the night downtown - am I just going to sleep through it? What I'm writing here is not about fear - it's just about a feeling of general incompetence and lack of trust in our local government to do anything intelligent. I sometimes just don't get it. If we are at war - if we are going to be attacked - how about one web page somewhere that you could print out that would tell you where you could get uncontaminated water in case of an attack?
