But .... But.... But ....
But those people in Boston got to have swat/VIPR/semi-demi-nationalized National Guard troops crawling through their neighborhoods, and it's just not fair they they get that and we don't! We demand our equal right to be terrorized! We demand to be allowed to just as important in the eyes of some two-bit home-grown jihadist with probable ties to Al Qeda as Boston was.
It's not like Mercury Blvd. is not already a temporary parking lot during commute times, that someone stopping and moving the box to the side of the road would make things that much worse. But two two-bit homegrown jihadists in Boston have spread terror all the way down the East Coast without actually lifting a finger to do anything.
But for me the big question is: would anybody have noticed my purdy handgun I was OCing while I was standing in the middle of Mercury Blvd. trying to wave traffic away from the box?
