      Hi Derek:
      Care about what? AQ plotting a 9/11 size strike? AQ using advanced communications? Government leaks suggesting NSA-style surveillance systems succeed in breaking AQ security (at a time when NSA surveillance in general is feeling the heat of popular scrutiny)? Factually incorrect reporting of a story dealing with one or all of the above? How this poisons our understanding of any or all of the above? The generally deplorable state of journalism?
      The answer would be different in each case. And part of what I like about the somewhat oblique style of my posts is its ability to stir thoughts not just about one topic, but a congeries… in different minds and mind-sets.

      globes sticking out on your forehead or anywhere else on the face.

      and make you feel better about yourself.
