In Portsmouth, New Hampshire, a Greyhound Bus was passing through from Portland, Maine to New York City. One of the passengers announced he had a bomb on him, so the bus is now surrounded by cops who are communicating with the people on the bus via cell phone.
I am immediately reminded of the Massachusetts drunken nutjob who strapped road flares to himself and threatened to “blow up” Hillary Clinton’s campaign office.
What IS it about Portsmouth that draws these idiots?
I’ve gotta get to The Day Job, so I don’t know how often I’ll be able to update this, but the Union Leader should be a good source of further developments. But I’m going to go out on a limb again and say I believe this will turn out to be a hoax — and another nutjob will end up a guest of the Granite State.
Update: Apparently it wasn’t a passenger who claimed to have a bomb, but a passenger saying another passenger had the bomb. The driver got off the bus with the keys, immobilizing the bus, but there are still 17 passengers on board — one of whom claimed that another had a bomb.
