This story is coming out of Houston:  
Seventeen large, yellow school buses were stolen recently from various charter schools, business schools and private bus companies.

... One detective said the buses may have been stolen and taken across the border to Mexico and that terrorism is unlikely.

Nevertheless, since the Sept. 11 attacks the thought of terrorists targeting children has certainly been discussed by the Department of Homeland Security. And that is why finding out what happened to these buses is very important.

Without alamring folks too much -- or becoming overly conspiratorial -- it is easy to see how terrorists might use school buses in attacks aimed at our children.  Either way, it is good to see that these sorts of things are being noticed, and paid attention to.
