This is only a drill

‘Twas September 11, 2009 in Washington, D.C.  The U.S. Coach Guard decided that was a good day to run a drill on the Potomac River, a drill that spooked people

THEREFORE, it is perhaps a good thing to tell y’all that late this afternoon there’s going to be a DRILL at the statehouse.  It will involve a helicopter an ambulance and some emergency responders, responding to a legislator’s FAKE heart attack.   Again, this is only a drill.  If this were an actual emergency we would tell you more about it.  (UPDATE: Today’s weather conditions prompted drill organizers to switch from having a helicopter land at the statehouse to having an ambulance drive up to the capitol.)
