Today is the 14th anniversary of the day Evil struck America, or at least reminded us that we are vulnerable and not the little darlings of the world and there are people out there who truly hate us, not entirely unfounded.
I've written a couple times about September 11, 2001 here and here. I don't feel any safer than I did before 9/11 nor do I feel any less
safe. I feel that all the hassle we go through at airports, the cost of
the TSA and the No-Fly lists that cannot distinguish between a 4 year old boy and a terrorist are just a colossal cluster fuck that we could really do without.
I do absolutely hate Bush for the Patriot Act and the creation of TSA. I also have a hard time believing his lack of action directly caused 9/11.
