    I wrote that in the heat of the moment because I am so hyper-aware of how our respectful silence for the victims of 9/11 in the days and weeks after that attack was exploited so badly by people with agendas that make us neither safer nor more free. And how much blood and treasure we've lost as a result.

    If I could re-write, I'd leave out the foreign policy part and just say that even as we grieve for the victims and their loved ones, we need to be hyper-vigilant about what policy proposals might come in the wake of this. And as always, follow the money. See if they don't lead to military and security theatre profiteers.

    If "elitist" just means "not the dumbest motherfucker in the room", I'll be an elitist! - David Rees from "Get Your War On".
