Holy Cow! We have a NEW color code!!!
George Pitaki is on Hardball, and he just said the NY transit system had been operating at a level orange. NOW we're operating at ORANGE PLUS!

Where did THAT come from? I sure didn't realize that we had degrees within levels!

3. Reminds me of that great Harvey Birdman episode
"We've been at Blackwatch Plaid, now we're being upgraded to the cover of Rush's seminal album Moving Pictures!"

It makes about as much sense...

12. And I doubted the effectiveness of Homeland Security.
When all this time they were creating a new and improved color code.

It's good to see that our big government money is well spent.

24. No, no, we've been at Bert for a long time.

I don't think we've ever been at Cookie Monster since this all started, and certainly never at Oscar the Grouch.


Just wondering. . . why isn't yellow Big Bird?

16. Not new. Where have you been for the past 4 years?
NYC is ALWAYS on Orange. When the rest of the country goes on Orange, NYC goes on Orange Plus.
