    •  The news media seemed to think it was theirs -- (0+ / 0-)

      headlines full of "terrorism" and "terrorists" within probably minutes of the event.  And then the public consumes it all without reflection or question.

      Some very emminent news personalities on NPR were peddling this as "terrorism" and the suspects as "terrorists" within days of the event.

      The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama
