Stadiums and hotels told to watch for terrorists


Here's a scary story from the AP: Stadiums, hotels warned to watch for terrorists. From the article:

Counterterrorism officials have issued security bulletins to police around the nation about terrorist interest in attacking stadiums, entertainment complexes and hotels — the latest in a flurry of such internal warnings as investigators chase a possible bomb plot in Denver and New York.

In the two bulletins — sent to police departments Monday and obtained by The Associated Press — officials said they know of no specific plots against such sites, but urged law enforcement and private companies to be vigilant. These two bulletins followed on the heels of a similar warning about the vulnerabilities of mass transit systems.

My question is: Aren't we already being vigilant? I have no idea exactly what to look for, but I always keep a wary eye out when I'm in a large public space of any kind. Still, while they have no specific targets or dates, I guess it never hurts to remind people that the threat still exists.
