Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. –H.L. Mencken
You couldn’t pay me to be there most of the time, let alone tonight.
I heard on the TV this morning that there will be thousands more cops than last year, both plain-clothes and uniformed, snipers on rooftops, bomb-sniffing dogs, metal detectors at the perimeter, and security cameras everywhere.
You’re not allowed to bring anything in: no bags, no backpacks, no alcohol.
Sounds like a really fun party, just you and a million strangers in the bitter cold.
I’m surprised they don’t make people strip naked “for security”.
Maybe next year.
