Never forget: January 31st, 2007

[Mooninite hanging from a bridge]
One year ago today, at about this time, Boston was in a panic:
    For those of you not familiar with Aqua Teen Hunger Force , the Mooninites are a race of video-game aliens who attempt, albeit inefectually, to wreak mayhem on the world. (They are completely awesome, though, because Schooly D does their theme song.) The joke is that the Mooninites always fail to do any real harm.

    Except, that is, in Boston.

In the wake of the attack of the Mooninites, I wrote What Does Random Panic Protect Us From?
    We're not facing a serious threat.
    We have a process, which I call "Random Panic", that doesn't protect us from it anyway.
    The protection is actually a bigger problem than the supposed threat.

... please read the whole post. Please pass it on.
