According to our friends at CNN, the country's terror alert level will be lowered from Orange to Yellow later today. Thank God. Since the alert level was raised to Orange, I've been avoiding high-risk areas like the subway, Wall Street, the Brooklyn Bridge, etc. Wait, wasn't I on the Brooklyn Bridge on New Years Eve? Hold on, don't I work on Wall Street and travel there via the 2-3 train? Heck, are you telling me that these alerts have no practical significance? Well, at least I won't have to see that damn orange bar on the cable news anymore. Yellow is a much prettier color.
