Ponder that fact.
Terrorism alerts could be the reaction, but it's interesting that
these haven't been brought out much lately. From that I infer that it
was not Karl Rove who timed the alerts, but Tom "Duct Tape" Ridge.
I think the current crew might be inclined to go a little further and
provide us with an actual incident of terrorism. Be alert for
it; at least that way you won't be "psychologically" shocked if the
incident happens. If there is no incident, no harm done.
