The Doctor Is In
Yes, he may be crazy. Yes, he may be irrelevant. And yes, his numbers might be a little high, but it beats listening to the same dozen folks repeat the same stuff on the networks (Couldn't they all take 2-4 am off for bathroom breaks and showers?).

Everyone is affected by this, from the desensitized to the overly emotional.

Thompson's recalls WW2 with his "Loose Lips Sink Ships" call. Just now ABC reported the Secretary of Defence pretty much saying the same thing to the various officials, agents and others working to find out the details of the attacks. He wants them all to shut up and stop telling the press everything they've found out.

Thanks for the tip that he's back. Sure hope he's wrong. No doubt a spell has been broken (we are immune). Let's hope it's not replaced by another one (we need a police state to protect our liberty).

Not immune
What's the opposite .... Mune??

Make no mistake about it: We are At War now -- with somebody -- and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives.

A bit melodramatic, to be sure, but that is exactly the sentiment I get from watching Bush and Rumsfeld and the Generals all go on about 'the death of freedom' and 'finding and punishing the perpetrators,' like this is all some episode of COPS that will never, ever end.

Thanks for the link, but I don't think he's crazy or irrelevant. I'm glad to read his thoughts on these sad days.
