Has our Terror Alert status been raised to Peach? This morning I heard two separate announcements on two different trains asking that people report any suspicious packages or activities. "Don't keep it to yourself," they said.

I found this odd because it wasn't a taped message like, "Don't hold the doors open," or something like that. The conductors were going out of their way to tell us to keep an eye out. And the other day there were about 20 cops in the Union Square station.

I would like to think though, that if the Alert was secretly heightened, so not to cause a panic, they'd tell it to more people than just the MTA.

So anyway, just a heads up. Keep your eyes peeled, city dwellers. There's a goin's a doin'.
