The Homeland Insecurity Choice: Which Do You Pick?

This past Friday, I’d planned a trip down to Boston, a trip that was halted by the lockdown of the entire city and many of its suburbs. Stuck outside the city with little to do but wait, I made my way to a Newbury Comics store where I found this trio of books for sale:

The Choice in Books: Keep Calm and Drink Up, Keep Calm and Carry On or Now Panic and Freak Out

That’s a pretty good summary of the choice before us when some schmuck with a bomb tries to grab our attention. Which do you choose?

    Keep calm and carry on, but keep an eye out for my neighbors who choose to freak out or drink up.

    “The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does. They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World Revisited
