I went to East Bay Deli w/ the guys from work for lunch today. Faux Noise Channel was on, lower-third chyron screaming to the world that there’s TERROR IN THE SKY. They’ve got the red text with “UK AVIATION TERROR ALERT SEVERE” in their crawl. The President came on TV and reiterated that Islamic fascists could attack at any time. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
Yep, the fear machine is in full swing once again. I like the Thoughts of an Average Woman on this subject, myself.
I don’t know about you, but I refuse to live in fear. I refuse to let these things phase me anymore. Fact is I’m still more scared of being run over on that giant crosswalk at Rutledge and Calhoun than being blown up by a Gatorade bottle detonated by an iPod.
