. . . from Jon Carroll:
There will be pressure to suspend our freedoms, to allow the government to invade our privacy and control our speech as part of the glossy new war. If terrorists force America to give up its freedoms, then they will have won. If we are stampeded into imprudent action out of fear, then it will once again be true that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. If we use our rage instead of our wisdom, we'll be just another dictatorship, and Sept. 11 will become the day we destroyed ourselves.
(Do read the whole article, it's all good).
"A horrific 'Groundhog Day'"?
I understand what he's getting at, but I can't help but wonder when a fairly innocuous Bill Murray movie became a pop-culture touchstone.
