Things are really busy at work, as we’re (finally!) moving the last of our co-lo servers inhouse. I was listening to an Atlanta talk-radio station online when the announcement was made about a bombing at Georgia Tech.
Of course my first thoughts were “Oh great, another bombing. Are they going to cover this one up too?” … followed by “Or a copycat nudnick, trying to be funny.”
From the reports I’m seeing today, this was most likely a prank. But what gets me is that a lot of media personae are making funny of the GA authorities for “overreacting.”
Excuse me … but if Jessie was in school over there, I’d much rather they overreact to an explosion and find out it was an intended prank rather than write it off as nothing and later discover it was an intended act of terrorism.
I’m still seriously dismayed by the lack of coverage of the OU bombing, so I’ve been following the reports on Michelle Malkin’s blog.
Sun Tzu is often credited as saying “To know your enemy, you must become your enemy… keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” – I honestly believe someone is or soon will be “testing the waters” with more of these ‘suspicious’ explosive findings and/or bombings.
And what lessons did we learn from 9-11?
