Looks like New York City has a real problem. They purchased a lot of trash cans for Penn Station, Grand Central Station, Amtrak stations, and the Long Island Railroad. These trash cans are supposed to be bomb proof; if a bomb is detonated inside no one gets hurt. Well, gang, they don't work. On testing these cans, it seems they only serve to make the blast more dangerous, because they splinter and add shrapnel to the blast debris. This is a bad thing, especially in light of the fact that the people in control of this project paid $3,000 for each trash can. I think I could find a better use for $3,000. But then I don't live in New York.
