Thanks to Steve Hoeg for helping out.
If anyone sees any issues with this article or would like something in it clarified, let me know.
Nice job, guys--great summation, and enough detail for those who are into that sort of thing.
The Dept. of Homeland Security should have contracted with you guys to help explain the color-coded threat level system to the public-at-large. Alas, too late...
Thanks for this.It is very useful.
Thank you (and Steve) for that link and the article.
