Click through for an excellent piece on why shutting down Boston was just the latest victory for terrorists who target the US. Love this line:
What terrorists want is to terrify people; Americans always oblige.
And regarding an attack on London:
I happened to be in London on 7/7—a far more deadly and frightening terrorist attack—and by 7 P.M. on that horrible day, with the terrorists still at large (they were dead already, but no one knew that), the red double-decker buses were rolling and the traffic was turning and life, though hardly normal, was determinedly going on.
Civil liberties aside, maybe it’s time for America to grow a pair.
