YOR BS: Terrorists Declare Victory in D.C.... (105* d) RE: BS: Terrorists Declare Victory in D.C.... 10 Oct 02

I live in the Maryland burbs, two children attending two different Prince Georges County Schools. My sons high school has a policeman at the school all the time, even before the sniper. My daughters elementary school of course has police at opening and closing times for now. The high school I drive by every morning has a police car sitting right up by the main road where he can see the entire parking lot, and probably more important be seen.

Both my kids are going to school everyday and riding the buses. The schools have been in 'code blue' (lockdown and no outside activities). I think thats a good move on thier part, just playing it safe. This sitiation can not change your daily life. I deter talking about it in length with my daughter. I think that will only increase her worry. She's had the 'street smart training/talks' thats all that can be done for now.

The sniper is on everyones mind. Traffic seems lighter, gas stations, convience stores, shopping centers and malls all seem less crowded.

My parents called me from NC the other night. Just making sure I'm ok right. I had to keep it light and kid with them. "Millions of people in the area and a random shooter" and "My work was at least 8 miles from the Bowie shooting".

I don't think the sniper is a terrorist! I think he/she is a out of the ordinary mindless demented psycho.
