Flying J

We stopped for Coke and snacks at a Flying J this weekend and I was fascinated by the sign hanging in the window near the door:

HOMELAND SECURITY TERROR THREAT LEVEL: ORANGE
please see cashier for details


I wish I'd seen it on the way in so that I actually could have seen the cashier for details. What on earth do you think she'd have said? Would this redneck woman handing out cigarettes late at night have spouted off something that she'd memorized off of CNN, causing me to faint from surprise? Would she have looked at me like I was crazy for asking? I wonder how many people ask her about the sign on a daily basis. I wonder why Flying J decided to put the signs up in the first place. . .

Strange.

I wish I'd taken a picture. . .
