Terrorism

(The requisite forty-five minutes of CNN.) Larry King Live. A hideous gargoyle presides over a convocation of mouth-part-clackers in a catacomb. I miss that lady with the biggest jaw power—she really made the walls ring. And whence Where is Chandra Levy?
Instead, An American Hero. The CIA dead in action over the years seem a bit sparse on the ground. Not too many stars on that plaque in the lobby, plenty of space for poor Mike Spann a-waiting. Odd, when you consider the trailerloads who buy it every year in action entertainment, where they’re like bowling pins in suits.
Followed by Mopping Up Mazar. A strolling warlord, sheathed in victory, swarmed by sycophants; teams of lesser men, turbans wrapped across their mouths, hoisting stretchers in a grisly caravan. I declare myself "troubled" by this new national aspiration to leave a pile of corpses everywhere we choose to go—this oath of blood. If someone came and killed all our bad guys, would we be good then too?
