Just to avoid the bad press and frustration, the Coast Guard has announced they’re going to hold an exercise on the Potomac this morning. Just so a CNN staffer doesn’t make up actual gunfire out of the calm words, “bang bang bang” on the radio again. All the details, courtesy of Arlington Alert:
US Coast Guard – Washington will conduct a boat tactics and maneuvering drill/training in the Georgetown Channel (between Arlington Memorial and 14th Street bridges) today Thursday 22 October, at approximately 1000-1200 local time using two boats with mounted automatic weapons: one the aggressor the other defending the security zone. No live fire or blanks will be used.
