You know, living in the age of the terrorist is tough. It’s enough to make a person miss the communists. Most of you were babies when the Berlin
wall fell but at least those damn Ruskkies stayed on their side of it. Oh sure, there was lots of yelling and accusations and baiting of one another,
but nobody strapped on a bomb and blew up a bus with it. Sure, as a child we would have to duck under our desks in atomic bomb drills, like that
little particle board desk was someone going to stop the radiation and shock wave from a 100 Kiloton nuclear bomb, but that was about as bad as it
got. Hell, the tornado drills were scarier than the communists. I never thought I’d say it but I miss the good old days of the cold war. (sigh.)
