Subway Rider Sliced in Power Saw Attack

A man grabbed two cordless power saws off a subway station workbench and went on a rampage Thursday, swinging the saws at riders and slicing open a man's chest before running away, police said.

The 64-year-old victim, whose name was not released, was hospitalized in critical but stable condition. Police were searching for the suspect, described by witnesses as a thin man in his 30s, who had earrings in both ears and was possibly carrying a teddy bear.

The attack occurred before dawn at a subway station a few blocks south of Columbia University.

Wielding a saw in each hand, the man took a swipe at one rider on a platform and missed, police said. Moments later, he cut into the man's chest at a turnstile before bolting out of the station, still carrying the power tools, which were later found in a trash can.

Police were reviewing security camera videotape.

The attack came two weeks after a Boston man was charged with stabbing four people _ three of them tourists _ over a 13-hour period in the subway and the theater district in Manhattan.

Sick, but funny as hell, peeb.

Allow me to utilize my Art Appreciation 101 skills for just a moment.

First, the subject appears sad. Maybe this is because the sun is shining in the subway, which would indicate potentially larger problems than an idiot with a chainsaw.

Second, the teddy bear has some abstract resemblence to Mickey Mouse. Possibly the artist is among those unstable individuals who believe it is truly Disney Corporation who is the anti-Christ.

Third, the simplicity of the drawing suggests how easy it would be, in a perfect world, to hack up those who piss us off.

Fourth, the dent in the top of the head is likely a result of his run-in the previous week with a dude in the subway who had two sledgehammers. (Could this be where he got the chainsaw idea? Is it fair revenge, or overkill?)

Fifth, we'll have to make sure ol' Eddie Scissorhands doesn't see this. His ego is fragile enough.
