So, Boston’s mistaking a cartoon promotion for a terrorist threat gives us two choices:

1) we can realize how utterly ridiculous it is to treat everything under the sun as a “security threat” or

2) we can sharpen our pitchforks, light our torches, and start looking for witches. Any bets on which way it’ll go?


(For those who haven’t seen them yet, these are the “suspicious devices” that shut down one of our busiest (and generally very smart) cities.)

Update: shocker.
