Times Square security beefed up for dropping of tonight's Big Ball

Let's hope that the Big Ball is the only ball dropped tonight by security specialists seeking to keep Times Square safe. Nearly a million folks, who don't mind freezing in order to feel a part of the New Year's self-appointed ground zero, will be jammed up against the ring of steel surrounding the internationally broadcast festivities. This year's event is made even more interesting than usual, due to the 12 inches or so of snow recently dumped on the Big Apple.

Meanwhile, many will be harking back to the Times Square wannbe bomber, whose attempt to explode a truck bomb in one of the world's busiest places, was thwarted earlier this year by the FBI.
