Time To Scare Up the Energy To Get Scared Again
By Cassandra D
You know, I think I can't whip up the energy to worry about this very real threat:
"...one of the nation's foremost experts on the subject of Osama bin Laden says that al Qaeda is "going to detonate a nuclear device inside the United States." If that doesn't scare you, you are no longer scareable."
It's not that I doubt the credibility of this latest report. In fact, it seems more real than the almost certainly politically-inspired threat warnings of the past six years.
It's just that I don't know what else to do. If the powers that be won't listen to Frank Rich and Keith Olbermann and don't respond to my paltry emails, what else can I do? Besides post on a blog?
And our government is an utter failure at everything it touches. I have no faith that even if we put our minds to it, we could do anything right.
Even that bright shining light of success, NASA, has been sullied. The myth of American excellence is dead.
Or maybe I'm just overly pessimistic today.
So there you have it. I've posted my blog post on the subject and that's all I can do.
