How are we supposed to register this acount of today's rather sensationalist domestic terrorism story?

The bad news is that terrorists were plotting to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge.

But the good news — at least according to Mayor Michael Bloomberg — is that they cared enough about New York to target it.

This beautiful story originally appeared as an Op-Art item in the NYTimes, but it no longer shows up the paper's site. I recently (December, 2004) received an email from the artist, Lauren Redniss, who included the wonderful image. I've uploaded it below.
