On Not Being Scared of a Halloween Attack

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is seen here

The inevitable next attack has lingered in the back of every New Yorker's head since 2001, since 1993, even since 1948, when E.B. White, in Here Is New York, wrote movingly about the city's newfound vulnerability.

President Trump called for stepping up his extreme vetting program after the attack Tuesday. Sand trucks will be rolled out along the route before the 7 p.m. kickoff time for the parade.

De Blasio said that he supports vetting individuals applying to immigrate to the United States, but not special scrutiny for groups of people "just because they belong to a group".

"There's no reason to have any undue anxiety", Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. "We're living our lives because we're not going to allow the terrorists to win, period". I met up with a few other families in the evening to take our kids trick-or-treating, then went to see a friend who was in from California, and the afternoon's attack was acknowledged with a few head-shakes and grumbles along the lines of "Yeah, bad day".
