In light of the disaster going on with our neighbors to the east, stay vigilant people.
Think about it. If you were a terrorist thug, and wanted to inflict the maximum terror with the least amount of effort, do you think this would be a good time to do it?
I say this because on the way home from work yesterday I noticed something a bit odd. There was a car parked under the brand new, soon to be completed President George Bush turnpike. This car had 3 men outside of it, and they appeared to be Middle Eastern or Hispanic. All of them were young, in their 20s, clean cut, with high and tight haircuts. Fit. And they walked like they have been trained. As if they had been in the military.
One of them had a small camcorder, like the one JR has. He was filming traffic - at rush hour - and the pillars and overpass of the Bush turnpike. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that blowing up a bridge named after Bush 41 and causing millions of dollars in damage; and thoroughly destroying a major transportation network would have horrific consequences for Dallas, Texas, and the United States.
I immediately called the Dallas FBI and gave them a thorough description of what I had seen. I've talked to a local CT Special Agent and he swore to me that they check each and every one of these reports out - or they lose their jobs.
Stay on your toes people. There are still people out there that do not mean us well.
