Fear of a warring planet

Don't run away with the idea that Exclusive - Public Enemy have cancelled their European Shows because they're afraid of being blown up, shot at or otherwise attacked. No, no - they're afraid for their fans, see. That's why they're staying at home. They'd be happy to go and play in London, England, but, you know, people there might be putting themselves at risk if they went to see them play, so it's safer for them to not have the temptation of a Public Enemy gig at all. You see?
Listen, Griff - people in Britain can cope with a spot of risk associated with gigs; we invented the jesus and mary chain and so solid crew. Osama Bin Laden isn't in it. Besides, since you treat your audience as free thinking and intelligent individuals, why not just say "there's a risk" and leave it up to them to decide if they wish to run it?
Unless, of course, the only asses you're really worried about are your own skinny ones.
