Contrary to initial skepticism that it was all just a drill, the shooting and subsequent lockdown at the nation’s capitol building complex today were definitely real. Luckily, a suspicious package that drew a bomb squad to New York’s Times Square today was determined to be definitely not real.
Brooklyn Patch has the report that the evacuation of a near-by Marriott was all for Marri-naught. The “suspicious package” was just garbage, but it took two hours to figure that out. As you can imagine, people are less than thrilled.
There was major traffic expected, too.

Now that it is clear there is no threat, New Yorkers are returning to their usual Times Square-related attitude.
