The Price of Freedom

Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom. Or at least 40 winks. When railroad officials found a motion detector in a commuter rail yard outside Philadephia earlier this month, they thought it was part of a terrorist plot. An understandable reaction, given the current political climate. The FBI was called in, and in a rare turn of events solved the case. Turns out, the detector was an early warning system set up by an employee who liked to take naps on the job, and wanted to be alerted when his boss was coming to visit. Ain't technology grand?
