I’m playing a little catch up here, since last week was a bad one in terms of work and bloggen. Here’s your delayed installment of Mars Attacks!
A quiet Sunday afternoon was turned into a tragedy as flying saucers launched their first attack against Earth. Circling an Army training base, the Martians observed the camp from high in the sky. Swooping down from behind the clouds, the invaders set fire to the military barracks. Soldiers ran outside trying to discover why their quarters had burst into flames. The young men were cut down by the strange rays which were unknown to our civilization. Officers and privates lay dying on the ground as the saucers continued their onslaught against the Army base. Word of the disaster shocked the world, and forced the president to declare “a state of national emergency.”
So here begins the evilness of the Martian invasion. I’d have to say that death rays from above certainly qualifies as, “a state of national emergency.” As a soldier, this is a pretty horrific way to go, but at least you get to go early in all the terrible shenanigans to follow.
