    At least he’s in NYC and not Chicago. The cops might blow up his art and charge him as a terrorist.

    This has been mentioned here and a couple other places once or twice now, I’m awaiting the knee-jerk police reaction to this. Remember folks, we saw a mention of the “LED Art installations” in Boston a couple weeks before the big scare. I’m putting my bet on this hitting CNN as a bomb scare on…*spins the wheel* …the morning of Tuesday the 16th.

    Neat gadgets though. They have to sound better than the “dying screeching birds / hawk screech” audio loop they play all day outside where I work to keep the pigeons away.

    isnoop: don’t you mean Boston, not Chicago?

    Or was there some event here in Chicago that you’re referring to?
