    History will judge it, not the fear-saturated minds this close still to 9/11.

    Sure, 9/11 is a great reason to be afraid.  But there's never been a shortage of things to be afraid of.  At different times, it was the threat of communism, or the Nazis, or Japan, or Pearl Harbor, or Negroes, or the British Armies.  Or, Jazz music, the Beatles, or Elvis, for that matter.

    It's always something.  There's always something out there that can get you, lurking around the corner.  You can either choose to cower in the corner, or realize that life is always full of dangers and you need to address them like grown ups.  Grown ups don't excuse or ignore criminal behavior, in my book.
