  1. Given that this week marks the anniversary of September 11th, is it really necessary to be promoting tongue-in-cheek craft that makes fun of homeland security? Personal beliefs aside about how the US government has used this rating scale (for better or worse) over the last eight years, it seems a little mean to post this during the same week when people are remembering the dead.

  2. On the contrary, I think it’s exactly the right time to post, as it’s what got us the alert levels in the first place. This piece doesn’t make fun of anything. I made no tongue-in-cheek remarks about it, either, I simply found it interesting enough to share.
