New York City To Get Nuke Detectors

    According to CNN, NYC will get detectors surrounding the city that are supposed to send out an alert if nuclear or dirty bombs are detected being moved into the city by land.

Under the "Securing the Cities" initiative, detectors will be placed along highways, at truck stops, in weigh stations and at other sites on the perimeter of New York, as well as locations closer to the city center, an official said. Locations will not be made public "for obvious reasons," the official said.

   The 2008 budget adds $30 million to the $16 million that has already been spent on the system. Homeland Security says that they want this working this year. I guess we'll see how it goes.
