What happened to the terror alerts?
There don't seem to have been any since, oh, say, November 2004...In judging a two-person singing contest, never award the prize to the second soprano having heard only the first.

Yes! We seem to be experiencing a critical terror shortage!

The terror alerts are still posted on TV. Just checkout CNN, CNNHeadline news, FOX, or any of the other news stations, Watch the Crawl, or one of teh line feeds at the bottom, one of them will have a blurb "Terror alert status: Elevated" or some such wording. To the people who watch TV a lot it will seem to still be important.They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

Hm, what happened to the fact that terror alerts used to be big news. Could it be people got tired of elevated terror alerts every 2 hours and started ignoring them?

Or maybe, just maybe, the measures that have been taken are effective.

They always were a pant load that accomplished nothing. They came about purely so politicians could say they were doing something. Now having served their true and inherently worthless purpose they are being allowed to die.

Yep, if the system had been brought online and only used in cases of actual emergency and only IN THE AREA WHERE THE THREAT WAS REPORTED, then they might have worked.
I found, the littlest things set off the terror alert. I haven't paid any attention to it in the last few months so it may be better now I don't know.

It's hard to believe that anyone paid any attention to it.
