Absurd Terror Plan in NYC

I've Been Thinking:
Thankfully, there has been no subway terror attack in New York City. Even though the threat put everyone on edge, most New Yorkers continued with their routine. Subways were full.
Hitting the subways seems so easy and baby carriages and backpack bombs seem so obvious. Here's the thing: The warning was "on or around October 9." October 9 is a Sunday. Sunday, the City is virtually empty. What kind of terrorist would target NYC on a Sunday in October?
The chances of getting caught are much higher.
The NYC Subway Terror plan was stupidly planned. It was absurd. It no longer surprises me.
