The best thing I've read about terrorism and terrorism prevention, ever.
"Lots more Canadians are dying and suffering now from things that we can do something about, that deserve the attention and investment that is being squandered on overblown fears of terrorism. The media should ignore 'terrorist threats', and starve their intended perpetrators of the publicity they love and thrive on. Terror attacks will come when they come, like a million other causes of death and misery -- natural disasters, transportation disasters, disease epidemics large and small, domestic violence, preventable ailments and accidents, things that extinguish and destroy many more Canadians' lives everyday. We should put them in perspective, spend our taxpayer dollars to minimize the death and suffering that is reasonably predictable and affordably preventable, and otherwise just get on with our lives."
