ZAHN: The challenge, though, is trying to figure out how to live in this constant state of alert and then be instructed to go about life as normal. Do you understand why everybody's equilibrium is a bit messed up right now?
"The new reality seems to be that we have a new attack alert issued almost on a daily basis. And what that does is that puts us all into a heightened state of readiness and alert, which is a bit exhausting."

I would just like to know that because I like to have a plan of action. So I think it's true that not only here in New York, but around the country, people are living in higher states of anxiety.

She ain't stupid. She could have suggested something, same as has been suggested in the last 24 or so hours on this board. But to do that would be a "risky plan", in the words of her husband.
