A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What is your view on the recent heightened terrorism alert level?
"I think that we need to go on with our lives and be vigilant, be observant, but I don't think that we should stop doing our ordinary activities."
Lisa Smukler, Brooks Bend
"I think it is very confusing when the government keeps making the alert higher and then lower and people don't know exactly what to do about it what they are personally supposed to do about it. And so it is getting confusing whether it is political, whether it is real, and if it is real, what to do about it."
Rick Tucci, Derwin Drive
"I guess I feel that I can't really relate to it, because I'm Canadian, and it seems to be a uniquely American phenomenon that Americans get together and get scared about things. I feel very detached from it."
Mikael Rechtman, College Road
"I think that it is very difficult to determine what information the administration has access to that would warrant a particular threat, and so I don't really pay much attention to the terror warnings and the elevated threat warnings, and especially the color-coded system."
Sara Nephew, College Road West
"It is a right-wing conspiracy, as usual. I don't believe in it at all."
Bob Raphael, Snowden Lane
