Another two links to pass along to the (very) few people who will ever see this. First: Roots of Rage (Time). Understanding these things is very important, because in the months to come, we have a choice: our actions in the “war on terrorism” will make our position in the world better, or worse; we will either reduce the dangers we face, or multiply them. I know which one I’d prefer. Second: A Pure, High Note of Anguish (L.A. Times) by Barbara Kingsolver. It’s deeply, almost distressingly human.
