Burn Rubber!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Fighter jets scrambled over Washington and authorities hurriedly evacuated the White House and the U.S. Congress on Wednesday when an unidentified plane roamed into restricted airspace, sparking fears of a Sept. 11-style attack.

Run for your lives, code red, orange, blue...whatever it was 'cause it wasn't on that code today when a "dubious" looking lil plane decided to hover around the White House sending all and sundry scurrying and scuttling for their lives. I love how everyone talks the brave talk about standing firm in the face of terrorism and "we wont let the terrorists alter out lives" but when the shit hits the fan...boy heels are a burning up the concrete, as the more important mortals head for their secure bunkers. Oh yeah, they're not afraid alright, always on the lookout for the next 9/11, but just like that attack was different from '93 the next (if there even is a next) will be so much different that we might not be able to wrap our minds around it and it won't be as obvious as some poor fool happening to have the bad luck, or mishap of flying their Cessna or whatever over the White House proper.
