Damn your smart.

Nest thing you’ll be posting that techie, Greek to me, CL Stuff.

Go ahead, kill me.

heh Thanks for the vote of confidence. I’ll try to refrain from killing you :)

I’m one of those who doesn’t care about the psychology of the killers. The lone wolves generate some curiosity (McVeigh, Gadhan), but Al Queda, the Taliban? What psychological formula will stop them? Arun said teachers and counselors to help young men in crisis. That’s fine, but that’s two pieces of the formula that Faiza said wasn’t substantiated. 1) young men); 2) in crisis. So… is it a thing or isn’t it a thing?

I know the answers are not easy. The questions aren’t any easier! You have terrorism growing in free societies v terrorism in fear based societies.

This is going to sound a bit pie-in-the-sky, but it may help to concentrate on activities that bind us within our communities. Christians, Muslims and Jews building bridges through a good community cause like soup kitchens, fairs/festivals, fundraisers for breast cancer, the homeless, women’s shelters, etc. Something totally not religious or political. Working towards a common community goal brings people together and it drives out prejudice.
