Hey, What's the Terror Alert?

Don't know? It doesn't matter.
Tomorrow Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano will announce that the much maligned color-code threat level, formally called the Homeland Security Advisory System, will be replaced with a more specific public alert system according to officials briefed on the issue.
...The system has not been raised or lowered since 2006 and officials say they have been better able to tailor security procedures without making changes to the color code system.
We've been stuck on Yellow since 2006. New York City has perpetually been on Orange.

Was it Andy Borowitz who said the reason they're getting rid of it is because with Boehner, everyone thinks we're at level orange? LOL!
