Well, that guy’s got it made. This one’s in trouble, though:
@iowahawkblog I was going to leave the office soon and go home. Now what am I supposed to do?

Looks like it sucks to be you, buddy. You, and anyone else who plans on traveling, well, anywhere:
Literally don't leave your room. The bathroom is risky. Kitchen out of the question https://t.co/IG7FxVQ8ub

This oughtta be good.
From the State Department:
The State Department alerts U.S. citizens to possible risks of travel due to increased terrorist threats. Current information suggests that ISIL (aka Da’esh), al-Qa’ida, Boko Haram, and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics, using conventional and non-conventional weapons and targeting both official and private interests. This Travel Alert expires on February 24, 2016.
Authorities believe the likelihood of terror attacks will continue as members of ISIL/Da’esh return from Syria and Iraq. Additionally, there is a continuing threat from unaffiliated persons planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations but conducted on an individual basis. Extremists have targeted large sporting events, theatres, open markets, and aviation services. In the past year, there have been multiple attacks in France, Nigeria, Denmark, Turkey, and Mali. ISIL/Da’esh has claimed responsibility for the bombing of a Russian airliner in Egypt.
Well, that’s comforting!

So far. That we know of.

Well, on the plus side, at least the travel advisory’s only temporary …
@iowahawkblog THANK GOODNESS THIS WILL ALL BE CLEARED UP ON FEB 24, 2016.
— CAPSLOCK HUSTLA (@CAPSLOCKHUSTLER) November 23, 2015
@iowahawkblog But how do they know the threat will end on EXACTLY Feb 24, 2016? Must be a bunch of fortune-telling geniuses over at State.
— Mark Antonio Wright (@mawrightjr) November 23, 2015
@iowahawkblog only until February 24, 2016
— Eric Pendleton (@EFPendleton) November 23, 2015
@iowahawkblog but after February 24th, 2016 we're good. So there's that.

That raises a good question, though:
@iowahawkblog what's happening Feb.23rd?
