Sometimes I think the terrorists have succeeded in doing what they intended to do. We can't turn around without someone screaming that the sky is falling. A few weeks ago, a geocache was mistaken for a bomb on the Rainbow Bridge north of Smith's Ferry blocking traffic for hours while bomb squads investigated. Last year, harmless flour used to mark a trail for a Monday night Hash House Harriers run was mistaken for--you guessed it--anthrax. This week, an entire terminal in San Diego's airport was cleared because an X-ray screener mistook a child's toy and cookie for bomb making parts.
