Cheerleader blessing caused Disneyland lockdown

Posted Thursday, March 8, 2012 9:19 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Last weekend’s bomb scare at Disneyland that locked thousands of visitors out of the park for up to three hours was unwittingly triggered by a Rohnert Park man who had placed a scroll of paper in a tree near the ticket booths. The unidentified man went to the famed amusement park with his daughter and her Rohnert Park youth football spirit team for a national cheerleading competition there. He apparently wrote something ornately on paper, rolled it up and placed it in a tree to bless or encourage the girls.

Another reason to avoid cheerleader month a Walt Disney World. It is bad enough they can't keep those girls under control late at night. Forget getting a good night's sleep. But now the park has to go on lockdown because of them?

This whole thing is just very confusing.

1) Why would a piece of paper in a scroll cause any sort of panic whatsoever? In a tree? I still don't get it.

2) You "blessed" a cheerleading team with something written on a a tree?

Just very. very odd. :)

Does this mean the terrorists won?

No. The cheerleaders have.

Indiana State Rep. Bob Morris certainly thinks so.

The only real flaw in democracy is that stupid people like that can be elected.

Just wondering why they refer to it as a "blessing" as opposed to inspirational message or positive reinforcement. Seems like a lame attempt to connect terrorism and religion, even when neither is involved.
