February 12, 2003 in Iraq War

Code Orange

So it looks like we are really going to war again. I’m scared. This time around, something tells me that it’s going to be a lot worse than Desert Storm. More soldiers will come home in body bags. And right here in the good old USA terrorist are likely to strike. I feel helpless knowing that there is not much I can do to prevent the war. I feel helpless in the thought that should a biological attack occur here in The Windy City, there is not much I can do to really increase my chances for survival. Let’s not kid ourselves, should something actually happen (and I hope not), plastic sheeting and duct tape is not going to save my life. So even thought I’m scared, I’ll only buy some extra bottled water, but beyond that, I’ll do nothing.

    Beyond exercising ordinary caution, I think the best thing for anybody to do is the same old/same old. Step outside, take a deep breath and go to movie or out to dinner or to the gym. A day or two after Sept. 11, we went over for dinner to the Gale Street Inn and the place was packed with people who had the same idea. I hope this war doesn’t happen, and I share many of your reservations, but I’m not going to be forced into a corner with my blankie in my hand and my thumb in my mouth.
