Missile-defense site: Where to put it?
(A Loop contest!)

(Marlon Correa)
The Loop has gotten lots of entries in our contest to pick the site to locate a missile-defense system on the East Coast. From the Jersey Shore (to protect that national treasure, Snooki) to a goof-prone town called Accident, Md., (what could possibly go wrong there?), you’ve got plenty of ideas for where the big guns should go.

But we’re looking for more!

You have until May 25 to submit your suggestions for where the Pentagon should install the sites, which are meant to protect us from as-yet non-existent missiles from Iran and North Korea, and which the top military brass says we don’t really ... well, you know ... need.

But hey, the West Coast has some, and we want in. But where to put them? That’s up to you!

Alas, a few of you have even written in with suggestions for where missiles should be aimed, not where the anti-missile missiles should be located. We’ve chuckled over a few such entries — but they won’t earn you a place in the winner’s circle (and one of our coveted Loop T-shirts!).

You can leave your entry as a comment on the blog — you may want to double-check that there’s an active e-mail address associated with your log-in.

You can also e-mail us at (Please make sure you include a home or cellphone so we can contact you.)

The top five winners will receive a coveted In the Loop T-shirt and the usual bragging rights when we announce winners. (If you need to enter “on background,” that’s fine.)

Happy missile-siting, folks.
