On the street in NYC after the 9-11 tragedy, I think it was 9-13. I was visiting my son in upstate New York and couldn’t get a flight back home to Florida, so I took the bus. While waiting to get on another bus going south some idiot called in a bomb threat so naturally we were all removed from the area and waited while all was cleared. No bomb found Thank God. That trip by bus took two days and 11 bus changes.
