... And the Home of the Brave

The guy is mystified:
Twenty-two-year-old Todd Venderlin, a design student at the Parsons School of Design in New York City, saw one of the devices two weeks ago as he left a lounge in south Boston, according to The Boston Globe. He said he was stunned when he saw bomb squads removing them.

"It's so not threatening -- it's a Lite-Brite," he told the newspaper, referring to the children's toy that allows its users to create pictures by placing translucent pegs into an opaque board. "I don't understand how they could be terrified. I would if it was a bunch of circuits blinking, but it wasn't."
I can help him understand it. Proverbs 28, verse 1:
The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.
Many, if not most, of us know somewhere deep inside us that those who follow the ways of cruelty and conquest and hubris ultimately reach unpleasant ends. Maybe that's why many of us are so jumpy.
