I'll put my shares on California.

You anti-murkan or something? Biased against native, home-grown terrorists? Just awful how unenlightened people are these days...

Could we enamor the terrorists of, say, North Dakota, instead?
I hope that you are wrong.
If you are correct, I hope that it turns out to be *southern*
California (a separate state with the same governor and other
state accoutrements)... %-}
P.S.: I still haven't read the source material for this, but
it appears everybody I know is saying "The Onion has written
the headline for today!"
Re: Could we enamor the terrorists of, say, North Dakota, instead?
No! Not North Dakota! One of the senators who brought the issue to light was from North Dakota (besides, I'm moving there in a month). Pick Wyoming or something, please!
Definitely west coast, because of easier port access, and because the east coast's been done already. And either a large city or an internationally-recognizable landmark. Oregon doesn't have either, and Seattle's Space Needle doesn't really qualify. So I'll put my money on California, and more specifically, either LA or San Francisco.
Of course, if I guess this right, I completely expect to be immediately fingered by the Total Information Awareness program and disappeared indefinitely into Guantamo Bay.
