As the Terror Alert Level is again raised to orange, it’s second-highest level, by the Federal Government, local officials are on the news are telling Los Angelenos to simply go about their daily lives. They then prop the L.A. Chief of Police in front of the camera to soothe our jangles nerves by telling us how they have no information about any imminent attacks, that there is no overt reason for concern, and that Los Angeles is not a future target of terrorist activity… to the best of their knowledge.
This does not fill me with confidence. As near as I can tell, no one knew about the World Trade Center attacks, either. Duck and cover!
