Mom, Dad, Troy and I drove into Anchorage to usher in the new millenium. The fireworks were great, and it promised to be an excellent party.

As our hotel bus drove downtown, however, the radio announced "Attention: the performing arts center has received a bomb threat-- do *NOT* go downtown". The bus driver, whose English wasn't great, couldn't decided whether to do as his boss told him (go downtown) or as the radio told him (do *NOT* go downtown). We scurried back to the hotel, checked the news, decided the threat wasn't serious, and eventually made it back downtown. Sadly, by that time the party was pretty much over.
