Hypothetical is right. One would guess that the alert level was at
least medium when the Lodge had its bikie 'invasion' recently. And if
someone can be beaten to death in a airport with on-sight security
only alerted by a 000 call, how fearful should we *really* be?

sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
