Boys playing make-believe games:
A Louisiana sheriff plans to arm volunteers with shotguns, riot shields, batons, and a .50-caliber machine gun mounted on a "war wagon," as part of "Operation Exodus," a program to provide security in the event of a terrorist attack or civic unrest. "It's a calling," he says.

The office of Sheriff Larry Deen of Bossier Parish, near Shreveport in the northwest part of the state, last month selected for the program 200 local residents -- mostly ex-law-enforcement personnel -- and began training them in "defensive techniques in the event of a struggle" ...
This summer they will train to be pirates*, and after that, chivalrous knights of old.

* - the good, Disney type of pirate.


Avast, ye mateys! There be terrorism afoot! Arrr!
