American pedestrians are killed by cars every day. Americans are almost never killed by terrorists. Yet, our federal government is making anti-terrorist campaigns the center of its policies, while doing almost nothing to protect walkers from the threat of automobiles.
Here’s what happened to me in Little Mogadishu: I passed a couple of people on the sidewalk, and they both said “Hello,” and passed on.
For a world in which terrorism is supposed to be everywhere, and in which evildoers are constantly plotting the destruction of civilization as we know it, things actually look very peaceful.
