    the immediate aftermath was the description of the act as "terrorism." That's important because it makes the perpetrators "terrorists," whatever their nationality, religion or ethnicity.

    Usually we wait to see if the act was done by brown people before we break out the T word.

    Progress, of a sort.

    On the flip side, I worry about this nation becoming Fortress America. We've all wondered when terrorism would scale back from the dramatic and elaborate (9/11/01) to more mundane but more easily orchestrated attacks like we witnessed today.

    It's not hard to do this sort of thing, sadly.
