The nation has gone to a higher state of alert. Cities are tightening their security. Turn on the tv and all you can find on news channels are reports from the front and speculation about what will happen next.
The NCAA basketball tourney will continue as planned. And that's a good thing. I have three of the four number one teams in our annual family contest. The Academy Awards are scheduled to be held on Sunday as planned [although there will be less red carpet and after party coverage]. I'm glad that both of these major events will go on as scheduled. We're going to need something to divert our attention from the media overkill covering the war. I also think that we can't let the possibility of terrorist attacks on the homefront cause us to change our lifestyle.
Well... it's 8:00 straight-up. May God bless our troops and may this war end quickly.
