Pay No Attention To The Massive Police Activity At The Ship Channel Tonight

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: The Houston Ship Channel will not be the scene of a terrorist attack tonight, one that will involve FBI agents, huge law-enforcement motocades, sirens, lights, all the good stuff.

If you see such things, don't start running for the hills. It's a drill, baby.

"Late this evening into early Tuesday, the Houston FBI office will be conducting a practical training exercise in some areas of the Houston Ship Channel," agency spokeswoman Patricia Villfranca says. "Additionally, there may be a law enforcement motorcade running between Ellington Field and the Ship Channel during the exercise. All local law enforcement agencies in the affected areas have been notified."

Terrorists, also take note: Tonight would be a really, really bad time to blow up the Ship Channel.
