  •  Seeing "terror" in the headlines... (0+ / 0-)

    must be some sort of adrenaline rush for the paper's owners and editors. Of course you could call it "terror", but will that really change the fact that it was any of the other words you could have used?

    Tragedy, Bombing, Travesty, or (insert favorite adjective here) act...

    We really don't need to use "terror" for every crazy thing that happens in this country. This word is just code these days meaning that we are going to go to war against some new country.

    But what if this was something cooked up by a fringe of the Tea Party movement? You know those anti-tax folks that may have been forgotten to take their meds. Or perhaps the Govt Conspiracy theorists are trying to create incidents to complain about? But really.. what if this is a home grown right wing fanatic that we all know are out there? Will they then complain that someone used the term "terror"?
