"A" is for "Accountable", "C" is for "Credible", and how Harold & Kumar keep you safe

Previously: MTA: "Okay, so we're only semi-fucked. Yay."

I'll try not to dwell on the Chambers Street fire too much, especially since much worse things can happen on public transport, and no inconvenience compares to the loss of 11 lives.

If you're wondering like I am, how in this age of heightened security, a mystery homeless guy managed to get a shopping cart full of wood into such a sensitive, critical area of the subway system, well, so is the MTA. A day after greatly scaling back on the "3 to 5 years" prognosis, they're backing off again, this time, the totally believable Lone Homeless Man Theory. Lest you think they pulled that homeless guy thing out of their ass, they want you to know that they're still preeeetty sure it's arson.

But fear not, to make sure this doesn't happen again, MTA is banning photography, asking us to say something if we see something, and of course, installing the latest in cutting edge surveillance technology.
