Get yer head on straight

According to the National Post and Public Safety Minister Anne McLellan, Canadians are not "psychologically prepared" for a terrorist attack.

First of all, when politicians name ministries they're being ironic right? "Public Safety?" These people have read 1984, right? Secondly, what exactly does it mean to be psychologically prepared? Should we spend the day thinking constantly about an imminent attack? Now who on earth would want us to do that?

Luckily, we have organizations such as the FBI, who trained people such as former agent Ty Fairman.

"If Osama bin Laden put you on the list, you're on the list," Fairman said in an off-beat presentation.

"If he was just some Joe Schmo knucklehead that people don't respect, then don't listen to him."

Take that, Osama bin Knucklehead!

"The conference, which got underway Sunday, runs through Wednesday and boasts more than 1,500 delegates from more than 40 countries around the world - a sure sign that disaster management has become a growth industry."

Gee, I wonder if anyone is profiting from this?
