Yup, I went there
If Chewbacca lived on Endor, he could easily get a basketball scholarship.
My kids' elementary school banned running at recess and gym. They also couldn't use bats so they had to hit the wiffle ball with their arm. So glad they've moved on to middle school where they're slightly less paranoid.
It's a moon!
The lockdown wasn't put into place after the bombings. It was enacted after the murder of a security guard, robbery, carjacking, a shootout with ~200 rounds of ammo, one of the suspects blowing himself up, and the other escaping into the neighborhood with who-knows-what for intentions or weapons.
That, combined with the lockdown happening on a Friday (hey, 'free' day off of work!), and it doesn't shock me that people were willing to comply for a day.
Slightly OT, but I have an uncle who sold his dental practice, joined the Army as a dentist and served in Korea. Probably not the same person, since there are likely to be >1 dentist in the US Army, but it was interesting to hear about your friend doing the same thing.

He'll never switch to Linux - I hear he's far more "Cathedral" than "Bazaar".
But paper beats rock, so we are still doomed. Launch the giant scissors!
They'll be edited into the background of Darth Vader's funeral pyre, harassing Luke with anti-gay vitriol, in the next release of ROTJ.
we could power a small city with that "Whoosh" and a windmill.
When I see someone still using film. I mean, come ON, it's 2012 already!
Seriously, though, did anyone else think the rent-a-cops were bullying the guy for using last century's tech?
