Maybe the Common just isn't the best place to be shooting off howitzers, at least not without warning

J. Nathan Matias watched artillery fired on the Common this evening to welcome what Rob McDougall reports are various governors and other people in town for some sort of confab - more specifically, the New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers.

McAllister Crowley reports hearing six or even very loud booms and then "everyone at Downtown Crossing started running."

I'm not exaggerating when I say DTX was in a state of panic. People were clutching kids sprinting away.

Saw an article that Lepage was coming down frim Maine.

Probably 6 shots - one per state?

The Royal and Ancient shoot cannons off on the Common, but everyone knows that because Adam preps us to their meeting. Guess this was the clandestine event all the drones were prepping for earlier in the week.

I'm going to guess that none of them hit LePage. If Stephen King had written the script, it might have turned out differently.

When I was stationed at Fort Knox, we would occasionally get really loud cannon fire sounds in an area where there were no weapons like that nearby. We always jumped at the sound and were a touch shocked, even though we knew it was the sound carrying from far away.

And we lived in an area where this was normal life.

The Armor School was there until 2010.

So this is what the Turkeypocalypse the TLF is always ranting about would sorta look like?

Only with boiling gravy falling from the heavens and the sun blocked out by their sheer numbers in flight?

My friend was leaving work in DTX when a horde of people started running up Washington Street screaming. She got pulled into McDonalds by a stranger and was locked inside for a good 15 minutes. Said at least 1 woman got trampled and was waiting for an ambulance after the panic settled.

Imagine how they'd react to a real natural disaster, civil unrest, war, martial law, etc.

On a side note, going into work around 11AM and going home at 9PM there was a massive number of young under grad college age 'kids', on the trains, especially for some reason young women. Many had a name tag or some such shit. I also noticed a lot of college age young adults of color wearing tags that had Columbia University on them. Anyone know what was going on?

This is MA; I'm sure muskets are banned.

1776 gun control debate:

When muskets are banned, only the redcoats will have muskets.,
