  •  I think the points you're raising (3+ / 0-)

    are ones that would naturally lead to more discussion about the attack and the proper way to react to it.

    •  as I said above discussion is fine (10+ / 0-)

      flaily McSorrow porn is not.  Far too often in America bloviating and guessing take the place of actual discussion because there are too many people who have already decided who is responsible - and/or have a completely self-centred unrealistic understanding of the actual rarity of these kinds of events to begin with.  They focus one OMG THAT COULD BE ME NEXT when the likelihood is they will die of cancer or heart disease while choking down an illicit snack cake watching FOX.

      I saw it after September 11 as well.  Phoenix AZ was a ridiculous place to live in weeks after because every third person was certain that terrorists were behind ever cholla and plotting to blow up their first floor offices.  Mesa had one of the first post 9-11 acts of violence against Sikhs because people are stupid and can't tell a Sikh from a Muslim.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

      •  And I refuse to play. (6+ / 0-)

        My kinky friend in Massachussett's brother is going to be fine. (flying glass).

        But I am not her. I am aware this is a tragedy, and a wrong thing, and I'm all for capturing the doers and putting them in prison for the rest of their natural lives.

        But here in IN, I don't see that I do any good to anyone by doing the terrorflail thing. I do better by doing what I did; cooking dinner (farfalle florentine, nom) and going out for an ice cream cone, and enjoying a quiet evening in my little town with my husband.

        Therefore, I shall Keep Calm and Carry On.

        When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.
