Ok, yea, yea, yea.  But even though the astronomy is still low it
doesn't prevent me from thinking that living in Montana is safer
than living in Washington D.C.  I'm not sure which concerns
me more the risk of tidal waves from an oceanic impact or
the risk of a terrorist attack.

(And I *do* realize both probabilites are very low at least to the best
of our knowledge.)
