Hi Folks!

I will be glad when I feel like getting back to Grope silliness, but I'm not
there yet.  Anew:

I agree with the folks who say this was an attack on our culture, which the
terrorists believe to be evil and morally bankrupt. (Never mind that despite
its many flaws our culture is responsible for bringing more prosperity and
more freedom to a greater percentage of the population of the world than has
ever been seen in human history.)  Now typically, I don't make value
judgements on another persons cultural beliefs, but since they have sort of
forced my hand in that regard consider this:

In their little culture, they glorify people who die killing men, women, and
children indiscriminately.
In our culture, we glorify people who die saving men, women, and children

Now, whose culture is evil and morally bankrupt?

Take care all -Gary G.
