But now we live in a post-9/11 world.
It was a little disturbing to have one of our damtenders respond to a break-in alarm at a dam only to have the coordinator say, "O.K. you're dead." The terrorists had parked a truck bomb on the dam and left a vial of nerve gas behind to make it look like the water supply had been poisoned. The terrorists then blew up the control house so the gates were inoperable. In related attacks, the terrorists set off fake nuclear blasts at Los Alamos to make it look like a nuclear terrorist attack. Supposidly it is not too difficult to rig an explosion to put out a wonderful mushroom cloud. *sigh* I'm depressed that we have to worry about shit like this. I'm gonna go home and snuggle with my critters.
