I Believe The News Media Has Scared Me Quite Thoroughly, Thanks

So I awoke in a cold sweat after a nightmare last night. In this nightmare people were flying plains into the ground all over Staten Island. Not like two or three but several jet liners hiting people's houses and road ways and the like. I suppose this post-millenial paranoia is normal but it sure ain't pleasant.

To add to my nerves this morning while on the train and stopped at Canal St. I got a call on my cell phone from a strange number (402 572 7581 ring a bell?) and an automated voice said: "The area you are currently occupying is under an advisory. It is unsafe to be there and we recomend..." Train doors close and we role away. Maybe I've just snapped. I've repeatedly tried to recall the number but it's always busy.
