    I was thinking that someone was stopped by the cops and they didn't want them to search the bag so he said there was a bomb. I guess there was no police encounter.

    "work??? lol, have you seen the majority of the "clients" on these buses.....most of them wouldn't work if you threw a job at them."

    Wow. Ignorance on display. Any more generalizations you want to throw around without any real information to back them up?
