You know what I've grown progressively sick of? All this brouhaha about terrorist attacks occuring in the near future, in, of all places, in America. That's really wonderful. As if I didn't know that already. "It has been confirmed that terrorists will almost certainly attack in the next 3 to 5 years using suicide bombers." Wow, how many studies did you do to come to that conclusion? And is it really all that significant when in Israel it occurs as regularly as the sunrise? While they're afraid that their visit to their local grocery could conceivably be their last, we're engaged in the last melodrama of "Survivor" and worried that the bowl of potato chips is near empty. Thoughts like these make me want to shoot myself in utter frustration of this country.
