Today is Pearl Harbor Day. Or, in my family, the anniversary of my parents' divorce. Do I say, "Happy Divorce Day!"? Or, since it's not so happy, "Kind-Of-Uncomfortable Divorce Day!"?
The things that get stuck in my head are very random. It's the reason that none of the important stuff sticks.
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."This reminds me that the federal terror alert system has been in place for almost four years, and we have not had one day at the green or blue terror alert level.
- H. L. Mencken
It also reminds me that fear mongering is nothing new.
