The war on terrorism has instigated a new kind of hubris. In the airport last week, I watched with no small amount of amusement as an ordinary dude railed to anyone in earshot about how his lost luggage was a breach of national security, and that he was going to call the FBI and get them on the case. Had my flight not been about to board, I would have offered to dial them for him, just to watch the ensuing ruckus.
Similarly, though, we have to recognize the heroes in the war on terror. Like the cabbie who kicked one of the Glasgow failed terrorists in the nutsack.
Tip o' the hat to Chris Chan!
