    Boston's not under a lockdown order. Or any sort of lockdown. Or any sort of order.*

    There's a shelter in place advisory. But that's longer to type, I guess? I don't know. I wish we (not to mention all the traditional media, ever) would be more precise with word choices here.

    *The areas being immediately searched are, of course, an active crime scene, and so they're much more tightly controlled. But that's not generally what anyone's talking about with this, so...

      If there's an F-5 tornado on the ground near you, the advice to stay indoors and hang out in your shelter constitute very good advice.
