BREAKING NEWS ON the antiterror front. Here’s the CNN story:

Authorities closed a 20-mile stretch of “Alligator Alley,” south Florida’s primary cross-state connector, and detonated a package early Friday after stopping three suspects who they believe may have been plotting a terror attack in Miami. . . .

Florida law enforcement officials issued an alert Thursday night after a Georgia woman said she overheard a conversation among three men in a Calhoun, Georgia, restaurant. Calhoun is about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta on I-75, which runs north-south until it reaches Naples.

She said the conversation indicated they were planning a September 13 terror attack on Miami, according to a report by Miami’s WSVN-TV.

This puts that whole TIPS thing in a better light. Well, maybe.

UPDATE: Here’s the latest as of 11:30. I hope they’re checking for more than just explosives. One report said that “medical equipment” was found.
