Grateful I'm not in DC

You know, I grew up in DC and I remember in my youth feeling grateful I lived at ground zero. Were there to be another world war, I did not want to be part of the rebuild the world team. I've seen Testament--no thanks.

But now, with our new version of world war--the amorphous and unending war against Eurasia...Eastasia...terror, I am really grateful to be away from the center of the bullseye. At least there are not men with rifles roaming the buses in LA.

Which is to say, our government sponsored paranoia color has been raised to orange for public transportation systems. Though Chertoff assures us, "I think our transit systems are safe."
