After nine years Homeland Security has decided to discontinue the color-coded terror alerts.
For 2/3rds of my children, they've never lived in a world without connecting the color yellow with elevated.
I can't remember how many times Parker has come up to me and said, "Daddy, I drew this picture all by myself and I even colored the doggy guarded" Now she'll just call it blue.
Here's the bottom line:
I am color blind. I've had to live in a world with an elevated sense of panic for nine years... knowing the full time that I would have no idea what the actual threat level was that day.
Not any more fellow Americans. What's the new system? Nobody really knows, but I have a few suggestions.
The sitcom system
The threat today is low = we're at a threat level Modern Family.
Moderate threat =Any show with a former member of Seinfeld of Friends
Extreme threat = Ted McGinley has joined the cast
I think this could be done with photographs. I lean towards black and white photos, but that's the genius of this system...it works for everybody.
You're welcome America
