Our Brave New World And People Yearning For the Old One

RE: The Subtle Changes Since 9/11

This was a much better article that I thought it would be. I recommend it.
"It was 9/11, then it was Iraq, then all this fighting and the war in Lebanon and North Korea. And the more you hear, the less safe you feel. It's almost like 9/11 is what got the faucet going," Parsons said. "Now it's Hez-bo-llah -- I don't even know how to pronounce these things."
...
"I'm very patriotic, and after 9/11, I was majorly patriotic," Nicole Parsons said, wiping sweat from her face. "But it's getting to the point now where everything is getting so out of control. . . . I do get to the point when I think: When is it enough? When can we stop?

"I feel like we're involved with everything that's going on in the world. I support my country, but at some point we have to stop. I just want it to stop."
