I was worried for a moment for everyone in Alaska, with the news of Mount Redoubt erupting again.
Fortunately, AP clarified that folks who are anchored down in Anchorage have nothing to worry about, since the volcano is in our 51st state, Alaksa.
But then I started worrying anew. Is this state named after the Al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade? Will the Department of Homeland Security really monitor my every Google search now that I searched for the AAMB site? Will I really endanger national security by driving the DHS web spooks batty with the number of times we watch certain videos? And most important, who will keep us safe if Sarah Palin can’t see this 51st state from her house? What if the eruption is just a…well, smokescreen to keep us from seeing the real threat this state poses?
And what if I don’t get more than five hours of sleep every night for over a week?
Oh…you already have the answer to that last one?
