A Long And Fascinating Account That Might Just Ruin Your Day; And A Link That Will Brighten It; And More Victor Davis Hanson
Thanks to PowerLine, I saw this chilling first-hand account of what sure looks like a terrorist "dry run" on a U.S. domestic airline flight, which appeared on FrontPage.Com. As nearly as I can tell, FrontPage is a fairly well-known conservative website, but I have not visited there more than a couple of times. At this point I have no way of verifying this story, but it is detailed and has the ring of truth. If you travel by plane a lot, like I do, this will have you thinking about Greyhound as an alternative.
Just when you're about to buy one of those 30-day bus passes, go to this link. It won't solve the problem of airborne terrorism but it will bring a smile to your face.
Finally (for now) Victor Davis Hanson is one of the most clear-headed, compelling writers around on issues of war. (He's a military history scholar.) Here is his latest effort to give us all some perspective on what's going on in Iraq. It's worth reading.
