Terror in LA? How to respond?

With everything that went down in London this morning people are looking around and asking questions. Mack at LA Voice has some possible situations and the LAFD blog has some useful links about being prepared, but the best thing that I’ve read in regards to this all day was Bruce Schneier reminding us to not be so distracted by the trees that we forget the forrest, so to speak:

“I would also like to urge everyone not to get wrapped up in the particulars of the terrorist tactics. We need to resist the urge to react against the particulars of this particular terrorist plot, and to keep focused on the terrorists’ goals. Spending billions to defend our trains and busses at the expense of other counterterrorist measures makes no sense. Terrorists are out to cause terror, and they don’t care if they bomb trains, busses, shopping malls, theaters, stadiums, schools, markets, restaurants, discos, or any other collection of 100 people in a small space. There are simply too many targets to defend, and we need to think smarter than protecting the particular targets the terrorists attacked last week”
