You still sound silly, but now even stupid.  Although you never hear about it, 
America is currently bombing seven different countries, each of which could very 
well inspire retribution. I know France is far away but in case you missed it, there 
was a terrorist attack at the Bataclan theater (named after an Offenbach opera) 
last November 13th. Terrorist entered the theater and, in a three hour rampage, 
killed 90 people and wounded many others. As a result, since that time you are 
searched every time you enter a Paris public concert hall and pass through a body 
scanner. Let me guess, there is no such protection at the Met. As the largest and 
most public opera venue in America, the Met, like the World Series or Super Bowl, 
clearly could be a principal target, the equivalent of the World Trade Center. 
To cite the "callous disregard" of one man heading to the opera sounds like the 
raving of a lunatic when the threat of terrorism is a clear and present danger.
