    Hippies All Over Again?

    Police investigating letters about Times Square bombing sent to Capitol Hill

    Member of NYPD's bomb squad examines the area damaged by bike bomber's homemade device at military recruiting station in Times Square Thursday.

    Police examine the scene of the bombing at the military recruiting station in Times Square.

    "Happy New Year, We Did It," declared a sign held by a man who was photographed with the placard outside the recruiting center sometime before the early-morning blast. Cops were investigating whether he was the elusive bomber.
    Copies of the photo and a 32-page missive that railed against the Iraq war and was signed "David Karne" were sent to nine congressional offices, a source briefed on the probe said.
    Authorities had contacted Karne, but no one had been arrested, sources said.
    One recipient was Rep. Nita Lowey (D-Bronx, Westchester), Senate and House sources said. Lowey and her staff were not immediately available for comment.
    The rants were placed in 5-inch-by-8-inch manila envelopes with two $1 stamps and a white label with a Los Angeles return address on them, Rep. Pete King (R-L.I.) said.
    A source said cops expect up to 100 manifestoes to show up in the next 24 hours because the envelopes were numbered.
    Capitol Police warned recipients to leave the envelopes unopened and contact investigators. They said the envelopes went through the standard security process, which involves radiating incoming mail and can take a week or more.
    The blast was the work of a two-wheeled terrorist armed with a homemade bomb. It was similar to previous unsolved bombings at the British and Mexican consulates in Manhattan.
    Homeland Security and FBI officials were analyzing the manifesto as city police hunted for the bomber.
    No one was injured in the 3:40 a.m. attack in a largely empty Times Square. The bomber, who was filmed by a security camera, calmly rode off on his new red 10-speed bike after placing the bomb outside the station, police said.
    A police source told the Daily News that the choice of a target in Manhattan's tourist mecca was meant to mock the NYPD.
    "It's a taunt," the source said. "He picks a place where, during the day, it's crawling with cops. No one gets hurt, and he shows he can do this."
    The suspect, his face obscured by a gray hooded sweatshirt, detonated the bomb behind an NYPD substation and beneath nearly two dozen security cameras.
    Police stepped up security at city attractions and recruiting stations after the attack.
    "Times Square is the 'Crossroads of the World,' and we're concerned about it," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.
    Mayor Bloomberg said the blast "insults every one of our brave men and women in uniform stationed around the world."
