While my heart is out for all who are suffering, I must take a minute to disagree with Mr. Bush's appraisal of today's terror as an attack on freedom by cowards. I don't think such a scenario is possible. Far more frightening, I think, is the likelihood that these were planned as attacks on oppression by brave - though obviously inhumane and evil - people. Our congressmen are likening today's attacks to Pearl Harbor. Perhaps there are similarities, but in this case, the question of where to direct our unified outrage and collective resources is less clear. (Perhaps it was TOO clear in 1941.)

It would be a nice gesture to the lost to use this day to seek peace rather than war.
