You guys may want to take a look at www.nycsubway.org
to see what they have done in response to this proposed ban, althoguh I'm not sure it will still be in effect after today (May 21).
As I posted on SubTalk earlier today:
Yeah, because you really need pictures to blow up a train, right?
Because the terrorists are so f*cking dumb that they would look at a photo of a busy platform and say, "I'm gonna bomb right THERE," without any planning or information, right?
Maybe the MTA should just go ahead and enact a subway-riding ban. Hell, maybe they should just ban people from being on any streets that have subways running below them or els above them. Wouldn't that be logical?
A terrorist (hate to say it) can walk into the Times Sq. subway station at any time and blow it out, pictures or no pictures.
This is just something that will piss off us railfans, and instead of sitting here and just typing about it, we should DO something about it.
Also, I like what Dave's done with the site, as past pictures could be "historical references".
I can tell you now, that ban or no ban, I will continue to take pictures on the subway system, as it has been one of my rights for years, and I'm not letting my freedom be violated in yet another way because terrorists crashed a f*cking plane.
This is still the USA, regardless of what terrorists exsist.
