Sane paranoiaA friend writes that she is scared. I can only reply:
Of course you're scared. Our government is trying to kill us, doing everything it can to provoke terrorism. If you weren't paranoid, you'd be nuts.
Maybe, though, it'll be like the last time: a remote television spectacle for the American public, mayhem only for distant foreigners. That's the optimistic view (unless you happen to be among the distant foreigners). I don't think those foreigners will let us get away with it scot free this time, though.
