Are We Under Endangered?

Terrorism has not, I repeat, has NOT changed the ways we respond to daily events. So, wedding reception garbage most certainly won't get a rise out us.

From the Weird but True section of the New York Post:
A small pile of gelatinous ooze tossed out after a wedding party caused a security alert in Germany, with biochemical experts, firefighters and police called in to investigate.

Fears of toxic waste led to the closure of a wide area after the emergency call, and experts wearing chemical-warfare suits spent two hours examining the substance before deciding it was jelly.

The newlywed groom, who was pulled out of bed at noon following a tipoff, identified the mysterious substance as Jell-O, and agreed to clean it up.

Given the high level of protection terrorists, environmentalists, and defense lawyers have forced upon us, coupled with the zero-risk mentality in today's society, we may, in fact, be under endangered. One would think there are plenty of real dangers in daily life we wouldn't have to invent them, but apparently not.

Be safe and sane out there. And, have a nice day!

There have been toxic waste accidents before 9/11 and you don't have to be an environmentalist to try not to die in such one.
