Please see cashier for daily dose of heightened fear…

Taken outside of Brookshire, TX

Returning from a recent trip to Houston, Jade and I stopped to fill up the tank in Brookshire, Texas at a Flying J.

There I encountered this absurd sign →

YELLOW is not a threat level. It’s a color. It represents the Department of Homeland Security’s Elevated threat level designation in their inane advisory system. While it represents a “significant risk of terrorism”, it is in fact the de facto default threat level as America is always at a significant risk for some terror attack. We’ve never been at guarded (blue) or low (green) levels and I can’t imagine we ever would be.

Please see cashier for details? I’m to defer to some high-school kid for information regarding the state of our national security? What specific intelligence will they impart on me to justify my newfound heightened fear? Who should I look out for on the roads? Do I need more duck tape?
