Is this why we went to Level Orange?

This is certainly an odd story from Washington: A man drove his tractor into the shallow water of a pond on the Washington D.C. Mall - N.C. Truck Driver continues standoff on Mall

The Washington Post reported earlier that the man in the tractor, identified by law enforcement sources as Dwight W. Watson, 50, of Whitakers, N.C., drove into the pond in Constitution Gardens, between the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial, about noon yesterday. Law enforcement officers are continuing to keep watch on the man, whom they have described as distraught. Although they had made contact with him by cell phone, it remained unclear why he was there and what he wanted.

Given that law enforcement in Washington is a bit on the edge right now, I hope this ends favorably for Mr. Watson.
