1. That's what Pataki said to do.
I was struck at the contrast...the Brits were encouraged to stay off phones and stay home. Seems pretty reasonable to me.

peace.

3. When the whole "shop more as a response to terrorism" thing came out
Was when I realized that the soul of my country was lost to me forever. I knew at that point that this would never again be my home.

What a lound and clear statement of what the powers that be really care about.

We are consumers, born and bred to buy, buy, buy and then die.
