Quick Question

there's no link
Do you think those guys hanging out in Grand Central dressed in camouflage and holding machine guns work for the government?

Yes, they do work for the government. The New York State government, they are Reservist on Active Duty.

Xyla,
Thanks for coming by the blog. Maybe the one you spoke to was a National Guardsman, but can we really assume that about each one of them? They don't even carry little banners saying "We work for the government" -- no badges or shoulder patches like the police. They just have camouflage and automatic weapons, neither of which are only available to officialdom. A casual observer like myself just sort of has to take on faith that these gentlemen and ladies won't open up on the crowd.
