I find it interesting that so-called terror threats are exposed and new regulations for flying are introduced every time there's an election in which Bushies are threatened. Even if there is a real terror threat dumping lip gloss (as happened to Bill's niece this past weekend) won't save the so-called free world ;-) Besides, sooner or later anyone who wants to terrorize the U.S. will figure out better ways to get the job done, e.g. contaminate the food and/or water supply. Sidebar question: why do people so blindly (seemingly) and faithfully obey these regulations without public protest?

What really needs to be done is an examination of the social structural reasons for the existence of terrorism. I'm very discouraged about anyone in our current government ever asking hard questions about socio-economic factors relating to world poverty (just one small example). After all, why would they do anything to question their favorite bit of ideology?

I'm wondering if others are as discouraged as I am? If not, please share what you see as hopeful.

In peace,
