McCarthyism

I'm convinced that we live in my generation's version of McCarthyism. I've said for the past several years that if the bad guys wanted to do in a crowd of Americans, they only need to walk into the nearest Starbucks, Wal-Mart, or other American icon and blow the place up. There is no shortage of soft targets in this country. And since our borders are notoriously porous, the lack of daily carnage on our soil implies to me that the hoops we jump through in airport security are a misdirected reaction to fear--not unlike the crazy things we did to combat the red hoard 50 years go.
