Weird combination of thoughts

I really don't know what to say about Palin resigning other than that unless some family member is very ill, this looks incredibly flaky.  That's not to say she doesn't have good reasons, including what seems to be a reference to all the ethics charges being a major part.  If it truly is because she doesn't want to haul her family through the complete and utter shit anymore, well, I do get that.  But it looks flaky is she intends to run for future office.

Now to the weird part.  I'm watching 30 Days of Night in the middle of all of this.  For those that don't know, it's a vampire movie set in Alaska.  I've watched it a bunch of times but I never noticed this before.  When Josh Hartnett, Hot Ass Sheriff, finds the first murders, he drives through town doing an announcement over the truck's PA.  That announcement roughly goes "Go inside, look the doors and load your weapons."  That really caught my attention now.  It's a great tiny throw away line that establishes the community.  Yes, there's a sheriff but the town people are expected to be able to defend themselves as well.  It just really caught my attention, what with all the discussions about personal responsibility and the utter abdication thereof by most people.
