Atrios on 9/11:
A tragic day which brought out the worst in our country. Not right away, but once evil people saw opportunity to exploit it for their own dreams of destruction.
War, plus/too/and, all things Green got crammed with ‘energy-security’ sugar plums to dance in our heads, meanwhile… bombs. Even the renewables rhetoric had to go militant, presto/macho – we must envision a grand Manhattan Project to wean us off of foreign oil, instead of you know, just doing it.
Down here, the PTB have been talking about a brain-train from our burg to ATL for at least a decade, instead of just buying the rights-of-way and building a high-speed rail fun ride to the airport.
Stupid. Thanks, terrorists.
