Apropos of our ongoing discussions of faith and crying wolf, CNN has now actually posted a story to go with their headline. Its essence?

“There is some chatter that points to the U.S.,” an official said, “but we don’t really know if it is real.”

But law enforcement officials stressed that the warning also said the FBI possesses no specific threat information.

So, whether there will actually be a terrorist attack is a matter of faith, I guess?

    I’m confused. Are we going to be attacked by flying kitchen objects seeking a free nebulus homeland?

    If that’s the case, then it’s more than faith, it stands to reason. 😛

    I can’t take anything CNN says seriously. I never have.
