    Hard to say what next. _New York_ magazine is running a piece on it in the not too distant future. Cops we met in the subway during the protest didn't seem too enthusiastic about enforcing the rule.

    I wonder if the MTA are considering a bonfire ban?

    Or maybe the guy had a bonfire permit. Anyway, it's reassuring to know that security is tight and that the MTA are on the ball.

    Best,

    NYC Abandons Plan to Ban Subway Photography
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Filed at 6:09 a.m. ET

    NEW YORK (AP) -- A proposal to ban cameras in subways to prevent terrorism has been dropped by police and transit officials. The move comes a year after city transit officials came up with the idea to forbid photography, videotaping and filming in subway stations.

    The New York Daily News reported in Sunday's editions that police and transit officials said a ban is not needed to secure the nation's largest mass transit system.

    ''Our officers will continue to investigate and intercede if necessary, if the activity -- photo-related or not -- is suspicious,'' police spokesman Paul Browne told the paper.

    The proposal by NYC Transit, a division of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, had been criticized as too far-reaching by civil libertarians, photographers and some city officials.
    Score one for our side.

    This is good news.

    Our borders leak like screendoors on a submarine, we have god knows how many thousand miles of unpatrolled coastline, and the brains at Homeland Security think picture-snapping in public places will bring down the republic. It's all such a big farce. Gotta look at it as entertainment, or you'll go nuts.

    I think we should credit David and give him a heart felt pat on the back for a job well done.
