The more I read, the more I watch television and follow the news, the more convinced I am that we will not be free of the scourge of terror in my lifetime—and probably not in yours, either. The only thing that will dampen terror down is the natural tendency of human beings to adapt. We all know that a certain number of people are going to be killed by lightning every year, and yet we still go out in the rain. We lose more lives to homicides in this country than we do to terrorist acts. We lose more lives to murder every year, in any one of our major cities, than we lost in the entire Iraq war to date. People will keep on flying. Cancellations of flights due to terror are minuscule compared to cancellations from weather and equipment failure.
