On March 2, 1962, a young Wilt Chamberlain set one of the most famous records in sports, scoring 100 points in one basketball game for the Philadelphia Warriors in their win over the New York Knicks. It got us thinking about some great records in music: Elton John’s 64 (or even more?) concerts at MSG? Bruce’s 4 hour, 6 minute show in Helsinki? (Which pales in comparison to Canadian musican’s Gonzales’ world record 27-hour concert in 2009). Know any other good records? Comment on the page.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced a new terror advisory system at Grand Central Station Wednesday.  The system will no longer use color coded levels like orange and red, and instead will announce threats as either imminent or elevated. The elevated threat warns of a credible threat against the country, and imminent threat describes an impending threat against specific targets.
