Happy New Year Danny! Oy how we wished you were there last night. I have tons of pictures in my camera of the fun. At one point Susie was even on stage! Also, your cousins Jonas and David are the coolest.

Anyway, I am scouring the papers online for a word about last night's incident and this is all I can come up with. It mentions 1 Penn Plaza which is the building across from MSG on 33rd Street, and incidentally the home of the Maury Povich show studios!

From the NY Post: January 1, 2005 -- A Penn Plaza maintenance worker was arrested yesterday after he brought a loaded rifle to work in a bag and showed it off to a co-worker, cops said.

The 41-year-old man, whose name was not immediately released, was apparently drunk when he arrived to work at 6:30 p.m. at 1 Penn Plaza and opened his bag to show off his Enfield .303 caliber rifle with a 10-round magazine to a colleague, police said.

His co-worker asked what he planned to do with the loaded weapon and the man gave a chilling response: "You'll see."

The co-worker immediately called cops, who found the man on the 12th floor with his bag, which also contained a military dress uniform and a Confederate flag, police sources said.

The man, who may have been distraught over his first New Year's alone since his wife left him, faces weapons charges.

Thanks for that update, Ellen, but do you think this was the guy? Sue said he was holding his family hostage and that the police snipers "took him out" whatever that means. Sounds like the show was great last night, I could hear some of it from Sue's cell phone (and God knows she was sure feeling no pain!). What in God's name are you doing up so early? (Or were you just going to bed when you posted this?) Were there any fun after-parties? Send pix!!
