  1. At the moment, my stunned thoughts are with the people of Paris.
    Going to a concert; out to dinner; football game. Just heading out for an evening of fun and the city is literally taken over by evil.

  2. Terrorist attacks are not intended to make us stop what we are doing; they are intended to make us do the worst that we are doing and do it more.

    The aim of terrorism is not to bring the “other” to surrender, but to bring the “other” to become the thing it despises the most: to become indistinguishable from the terrorists.

    This is why 9/11 was an unqualified success for al Qaeda. Not because of the people it killed — we slaughter far more on an annual basis with our own guns than died the one time in those towers.

    9/11 was an unqualified success for the terrorists because it convinced us to become even worse than they were.
