    The city goes crazy thinking that an advertising campaign for a cartoon is actually bombs and the media whips people into a terrorist frenzy? And now the city plans to sue Time Warner (who owns the cartoon) $750000 to compensate for the costs of this insane exercise. Plus they are charging the student involved in the advertising campaign with a felony of planting a hoax device that causes a panic.

    Classic, CLASSIC Massachussetts BS.

    As a sidebar, I've always been amazed at the irony of this state being the home of the Boston Tea Party. Talk about a place that didn't learn from history.

    With the forum TOS in mind, some of you know what I'm talking about.

    I had to point out to a friend who lives in Boston that they've done the same thing in NYC, San Fran, Seattle, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, LA and Miami, and none of them shut the entire city down.

    I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thought that when I read the article.

    I dont see the charges getting far, this is a joke, after 9/11, people just got paranoid, really, we know who would try to get us again if we really have to worry, yet were now always looking over our shoulder, we ned to get past this, and find a way to make security checks easier, and not go silly over little things

    And as for the mayor of the city, i laugh at his dumb *****, silly tool.
    Oh yeah, and i hate time warner, they got rid of NFL Ntwrk, charged more, and still say changes need to be made, causing my dad to switch to DishNtwk, making me lose VS, which had the NHL all star gm and shows hockey games regularly

    It's pretty simple.....Boston has New York envy. Always has, always will.
