Realistic Risk Assessment

Finbar is visiting me in D.C. this weekend. We tried to get tickets to tour the Capitol Building twice-- once yesterday and again today. When you are waiting in the line for tickets, a volunteer goes down the line handing out fliers with a list of items prohibited in the Capitol Builidng. Number three on the list is "knitting needles". Number ten on the list is "Guns or ammunition".

Yes, ladies and gentleman, knitting needles are a danger to our country's legistators and the staff members on Capitol Hill. Such a menance, in fact, that they are listed seven items above guns on the list of prohibited items.

This is my blog and I write about many topics. You are welcome to stay and read, but you will not see much about Harry Potter in the grand scheme of things.
