when I passed through Putnam Plaza today, the stove had been moved but was still there. the test is going well so far. at least nobody called 9-1-1 to report a suspicious package. that would have been beyond disappointing to have them bring in a robot to blow the goddamned thing up. while ignoring the fact that there are over 100 thousand trash and recycling cans in the city and another few tens of thousands of cars, any of which could contain a bomb, and nobody would ever know.

so you think I'm overly paranoid? there aren't people like that, who would call the cops for any silly, unsubstantiated fear they might have? tell that to John Crawford III.

oh wait, you can't, because he's dead.
