The reports have been issued and the “all clear” sounded. Those naysayers who argued against the dangers were right. The so-called experts who wagged their fingers in warning have quietly slipped back into bureaucratic obscurity. The invasion, as they predicted, failed to produce the horrific results they forecast. No clean up of the fallout when so many die was required. Absent was the deafening noise of so many buzzing voices chanting their presence in unison. There were supposedly pockets of intense confrontations but I personally saw only one solitary fallen invader and yes it had the reddish eyes of a martyr. Dying for the sake of propagating its cause.
That’s right, the ‘cicada’ infestation of 2004 is officially over. Now that the bugs have come out of their 17 year slumber to buzz loudly, reproduce then die, the “news-media” will have to find some other “chicken little” story to scream headlines at us about. Oh wait, we didn’t find those “weapons of mass destruction” either.
I can’t wait to hear what they dream up next.
