VIPER teams

"Visible Intermodal Protection and Response" teams (VIPER for short) now plan to patrol various other forms of mass transit, particularily in the Northeast. Gee, even the acronym sounds soooo friendly. Even better than, say, "Nightwatch." :^( Be careful where you step and how, since vipers are notorious for biting things that even vaguely resemble a threat. How appropriate.

So your Amtrak trains, subways, ferries, etc. will have these guys keeping an eye out for terrorists. So, I guess we can all feel so much safer when they shoot crazy homeless people, computer geeks with backpacks with wires hanging out, etc. I can hardly wait.
