John Travolta plays a brawny, brainy thug, chugging down New York streets into the bowels of the city with a grim, directed bravado that's the opposite of his gleeful swagger 32 years ago in Saturday Night Fever. Denzel Washington plays the subdued, out-of-shape subway supervisor who improbably becomes the chief negotiator for the city when Travolta and his gang commandeer a subway cab and two passenger cars and hold a score of hostages for $10 million. That rat-and-cat game isn't enough reason to see The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3. It's a remake of the effective 1974 suspense film that starred Robert Shaw and Walter Matthau in, respectively, the rough equivalent of Travolta's and Washington's roles.

"If you don't get a child on technology early, so that they can influence their environment, they will become quite content to do absolutely nothing and have people do for them," Garber said.

Michael McLaughlin and Eric Garber spend their days lacing milk chocolate and fruit juice with the deadly toxin ricin. But don't call the FBI. McLaughlin and Garber are U.S. Food and Drug Administration scientists conducting research on how bioterrorists might attack and how Americans can be protected. "The question was, could we detect ricin in food and cosmetics?" Garber says. "The good news is, we were able to detect it in all products at levels way below what a terrorist would be likely to use."
