Oh yeah and I was on the T and the train stopped at Kendall and The Voice announced "We will be standing by due to an emergency at Park Street." Then the car started moving approx 60 seconds later.

Needless to say, I was quite curious. So I determined to locate a T-cop at my destination and inquire. When I got out of the gates, there were two MBTA police chatting with a pair of maintenence workers. The nearer T-cop was animatedly relating to them the story.

To use his terms, "some alarmist reported a person with a knife(!!!)". The T-cops checked it out and found that the knife was a 2-inch keychain jobbie, no threat. "Heck, I have a bigger knife than that!" chimed in the other cop, flipping it open to show us. The knife-holder was using his reported knife either to clean his nails or eat his food (it wasn't clear to me which -- hopefully not both!), and the cop found the whole thing ridiculous. "Some alarmist," he repeated, with great scorn.

I was cheered immensely.
