I was driving down Route 3 (The Everett Turnpike in New Hampshire) last night. There is a nice giant sign on the side of the highway in Nashua that reads: Route 93 CLOSED July 25th – 31st – SEEK ALTERNATE ROUTES. My first expression was: “Are you fucking kidding me?!”
Today, I was driving up Route 9 in Massachusetts. There is a giant billboard going East exclaiming: NASCAR Winston Cup Races at New Hampsire International Speedway July 28th – 30th. “Awesome.”
For those who have never driven in New England, done the commute into Boston from New Hampsire, or seen Exit 1 in NH on a “Winston Cup” weekend: You can forget going anywhere around here that weekend, just forget about it.
Now to add insult to injury. Our republican controlled goverment has announced that: “Credible reporting now indicates that Al-Qaeda is moving forward with its plans to carry out large scale attacks in the United States in an effort to disrupt our Democratic process.” But guess what? By closing down 93 and going to fruity colored alert, we HAVE disrupted our Democratic process!
Terrorism wins. Thanks Homeland security…
