On the world is as it has been...

Since September 11, we have been acting like the world changed. It did not. Only our perception of it did. While we need to stay alert for other attempts to execute terrorist attacks, their power to destroy us as a country is non-existent. They can and will kill some of us; but just like we wanted to deny they were there, they are in denial about just whom and what they are dealing with. We need not help them along by self-imposed imprisonment in the name of security or by giving them more credit than they are due by overreacting to their threat. Much of the power in terrorism lies in its ability to strike by surprise. There is nobody in American who does not know it’s here.
