A little excitement....
OK, honestly we went back up briefly to grab our keys and such and to let other people know what was going on (wrong in so many ways, I know), but the first thing that came to mind when he told us that was Rick Rescorla, or more precisely what I thought was that on 9/11when the first plane hit and the folks in the other tower were told to stand fast, Rick Rescorla said "screw that" and got his people out. And I got "my people" out!
Now of course nothing came of the incident but just because it was a false alarm this time doesn't mean next time the game won't be on then either. In a way it was good to see how this went down so I know what to expect if this happens again. I am not going to give away anything I saw that I thought was bad that could be improved of just in case the wrong people may look at this blog, but needless to say there is room for improvement. I can tell you this though, mostly what I saw was complacency. A bunch of people that have had no first had experience with this type of event just milling around sight seeing. Bunched up, easy targets for a secondary device. That's always a favorite tactic of bombers...plant a small diversionary device to explode and cause some havoc that brings both gawkers and first responders together and then detonate a second primary blast when they are all huddled around their first event. I am not telling you something here our enemy already doesn't know. I consider us fortunate that our homeland has not had to put of with this type of activity that this behavior is an issue. But with many silver linings, there is a black cloud hovering nearby.
And as I type this tonight I see another underwear bombing has been foiled by the CIA. Stay vigilant folks, just because I am paranoid doesn't mean they aren't still out to get us.
