From an interview with John Kerry in Rolling Stone magazine:
Q: What do you think of the color-coded terror alerts the Department of Homeland Security issues?
Reader Jonathan Wilson offers a preview of Kerry's French-looking alert system:
Kerry: I think Americans, sadly, laugh at it. They don't know what to do.
Q: Will you continue that program?
Kerry: No. I'm going to find some more thoughtful way of alerting America.
Level 1: Ennui
Level 2: Comme ci, comme ça
Level 3: Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose
Level 4: Regardez!
Level 5: Zut alors!
Heh. That was too good to pass up.
