Um, Is This Good News or Bad News?

The feds no longer consider Las Vegas to be a "high threat" for terror attacks. On the plus side, maybe that indicates that the terrorists finally realized that they shouldn't bomb the strip, because the strip symbolizes the liberal mindset of "anything goes/don't you judge me" more than almost any other landmark in America, and (according to the liberals, anyway) the terrorists only want to blow up America because it's too darn conservative.

The down side is that a couple of federal dollars that otherwise would have come into the state to help prevent an attack will now be diverted to other, more high-risk cities. I didn't read very far into the article, but I assume the new list includes Meeteetsee, Wyoming, which went 93.4% for Bush in 2004.*

Of course, if someone does detonate a dirty bomb downtown, we'll just use the Chief Wiggum response: "It's a good thing the dirty bomb went off in that huge, smoking crater."

*Note: may or may not be a fact.
