I read in the Science Times
that the Oracle at Delphi
's prophecies were caused by huffing gas fumes
. Also, that 15 girls in Saudi Arabia
died in a fire
because the religious police
wouldn't let them out or the firefighter
s in because the girls weren't wearing their veil
I got off the train
at Grand Central at about 6:10 PM.
There was a PA announcement
: "Due to police action
, all New Haven Line
trains are being held at Grand Central Terminal
until further notice."
Okay, I thought. Probably some purse snatcher
jumped on the train and hid and they've got to find him. Definitely nothing to worry about. Until fifteen seconds later, another announcement:
"All emergency engineer
s, please report to Track 25
is that? I figured they were asking for volunteers to drive the terrorist death train full of napalm
virus out of town. I got out of there wit' a quickness.
Later, I read over somebody's shoulder that some guy killed himself jumping out of the train near Rye
. Pretty sad.
