"One should doubtless keep an open mind...though open at both ends, like the food pipe, and have a capacity for excretion as well as intake." -- Northrop Frye, 'The Great Code'

Terrorist wannabees "unlikely suspects"
"Unlikely suspects"? Catholic grannies are unlikely suspects. Chinese- and Indo-Canadian Buddhists and Hindus are unlikely suspects. But Pakistani and Iranian Muslims with burqha wearing wives? I think not.
"It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences." -- C. S. Lewis
