CODE RED!:

Nearing Red in D.C. (Washington Whispers, 2/14/03, US News)
Indications from government sources are that the already heightened Code Orange security alert Washington, D.C., is operating under may be increased to Code Red in the next 24 hours because of heightened concern about a possible terrorist attack. While a top Bush aide said that a change from orange to red–the highest alert–isn't imminent, other moves suggest otherwise. Whispers learns that lawmakers are being encouraged to send their families back to their home states. Other government sources are freely talking about the increased security alert possibly coming as soon as Friday.

It may be a mundane point, but this would explain Bill Frist not forcing the Democrats to continue their filibuster right now. Posted by Orrin Judd at February 14, 2003 11:05 AM
