Luck, Vigilance & Ineptitude

Had it not been for the awareness of a tee-shirt vendor, had the would-be bomber not been inept, New Yorkers (all of us!) might not have been so lucky Saturday evening.

Watching news reports of the attempted bombing of Times Square from the comfortable remoteness of my Chicagoland living room it occurred to me that I've stood on the spot where the Nissan Pathfinder was parked. Had it been a couple of days ago rather than a couple of years ago, had the guy actually known how to make a bomb, I might have been standing right there and been blown to bits while making this picture.

Timing is everything.
