Last night, the Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins made official what people had assumed for weeks: Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III would be the first two players selected in the NFL draft. Fans in Dallas didn’t know the Cowboys would trade up to draft cornerback Morris Claiborne. Nor do we know how well he’ll play for his new team. That’s the frustrating thing about the future: you can prepare but you can never be sure.
On a much more somber note, global headlines are warning of a major security surge at airports next week as the anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s May 1 death approaches. Intelligence reports state that al Qaeda is determined to avenge the death of its founder and will focus on aviation targets. As a result, we can expect enhanced security over the next several days.
