Government unveils new terror alert system

The headline:  Government implements new terror alert system

The link:  http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/04/20/government-implements-new-terror-alert-system/?hpt=T2

The summary:  The federal government on Wednesday will unveil a new terror alert system designed to replace the color-coded system that has been in place since the attacks on September 11, 2001.

The reaction:  And I was just finally getting used to the old system!

I have no problem with this considering the old system wasn’t much of a system to begin with.  The alert level bounced between yellow (elevated) and high (orange) a few times but hasn’t moved off of yellow since 2005.  The new system is supposed to be simpler and alerts issued when a credible threat is discovered.
