"I would tell people now to go about their lives. There's no need to panic."

"I want to urge all of our citizens ... to remain calm... At the same time... remain vigilant."

Guaranteed that nothing will happen. This is Example 7,841 of the nonexistent "terror" plots that the government solemnly warns us about, and which prove to be a whole lot of nothing.

It's never too early to panic.

I recommend spending 5 minutes or so of every waking hour in a panic, until the official word comes to tell you to stop.

How to Panic
1. The first stage of panic is to be distracted by any and all sensory input. Make your mind cluttered and unable to manage a million simultaneous demands.

2. Walk aimlessly and rapidly in the traditional agitated posture or sit in any position that is uncomfortable.

3. Turn your attention to your breathing. Breathe in a rapid, shallow, irregular pattern until you feel a little lightheaded. Begin to feel as if you are going to suffocate.

4. Try to concentrate on every fleeting thought to the exclusion of reason. Ask of each sound or fleeting image in your peripheral vison, "What was that? Feel certain it meant you harm.

5. Begin to notice how odd your hair feels, as if it does not belong to you, and that your skin crawls, and there is an itch here and now there. It's probably cancer.

6. Invite an overwhelming sense of impending doom. Drink deeply of it. Swim in it. This is surely the end.

7. Once the all-clear is announced, change your underwear, then get totally blotto.

Can I go about my life if it includes salt and fried food?

How about a smoke at a pub? Never trust a nanny stater when it comes to the freedom to go about your life.

Student 2: Hey, Porgy! Hey, Porgy! Principal Poop's on the radio. Turn the car radio. Poop's on.

Principal Poop: But don't worry! Don't worry! Your food, housing, insecurity, will be guaranteed by the Department of Redundancy Department and the Natural Guard.

Principal Poop: And remember trust pressers will be persecuted. So please, stay where you are, don't move, and don't panic! Don't take off your shoes. Jobs is on the way.

Porgy: Golly!

Principal Poop: Thank you!

"The Islamoids have talked about setting off a car bomb!"
"People could be killed."
"We could be doomed! Doomed! Because the terrorists only have to get lucky once, and they win!"
"All we can do is keep our trust, and our tens of billions going, to the Heroes of Security and give homage to them and their Uniforms. Because they have to be perfect every time!"

Anyone remember "al-Qaeda determined to strike in the U.S.?" According to some people I am friends with on FB (who otherwise seem fairly reasonable and intelligent), that was supposed to have been acted on. Somehow.

As an aside, I am an old friend of the head of Homeland Security's tunnel defense program ("Resilient Tunnel"). Last night it occurred to me that he's probably not going to get any sleep for a few days. I'm guessing his pucker factor is high.
