Being cognizant of one's environment is one thing; thus awareness of
terrorist situations and methods of control for them is not an
unreasonable action. Allowing terrorist threat to modify an
otherwise desirable and reasonable action is another. Not looking
both ways when crossing the street is simply silly. Not crossing
the street because the possiblity exists that one may be struck by a
vehicle is also silly.
