on danger

Wow, according to the Dept. of Homeland Security, we Montanans are in serious danger, much more than some of the more populated states. According to a New York Times story, Montana, which ranks low in population has 1,538 possible terrorist targets. They don't name them; too busy citing the sites in Indiana which has the most of any state. But I would guess, the Western Days Parade, the St. Paddy's Day Parade, First Intestate Bank and Wells Fargo Bank buildings are on the list. What else? And to think I was smug enough to think that the only time I faced danger from terrorists was when I flew to California. It only has a bit over 3,000 sites.

CORRECTION: Dyslexia strikes again. I reread the Times article again today and the figure is 1,358. I got the right numbers the other day but in the wrong order. And it does make me feel safter.

You forget the Travel Cafe populated by liberals every Wednesday afternoon. At least we can all go out together.

Hungry Horse Dam has to be on that list especially since after September 11th, everyone and their mother was up there guarding it.
