Is this the kind of story that now ends up as an Odd Spot or as part of Also in the News? From CNN:
Editor’s note: Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafism, a 21-year-old man, has been arrested on suspicion of planning to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, federal officials said. Authorities say he attempted to detonate what he believed was a 1,000-pound bomb. This story is developing.
Will this story be major or even be reported anywhere else? The story doesn’t mention whether the alleged bomber is an Austrian economist but I will try to find out.
I’m advised in the comments: that it’s a big story. Good and it should be. Now we only need to find out if the alleged bomber was of the Austrian economic persuasion. Do the stories mention what his motivation was in trying to blow up the New York Fed?
Just checked out The New York Times Online edition: For New York, it is not only an international story of quite some significance, it is not only a national story of quite some significance, but it is even a local story of quite immense significance. And true to form, there it is on its online edition, right underneath this:

Why do you suppose that is? Can’t be good for Obama is all I can think of.
