ISIS: the new boogieman

Media is really working that ISIS thing–especially with the 4th of July coming up. Police departments have sophisticated equipment to distinguish between firecrackers & bombs when any teenager could tell them. Network news brought on terrorism experts to declare the world on high security alert. They expect “ISIS-inspired gunmen” to show up at US embassies, on beaches, in 4th of July parades & picnics. And of course as we know from TV, they’ll be wearing hijabs or carrying a Quran or saying something in Arabic. Be afraid. Be very afraid. And then turn the damn TV off.
