Apocalypse Soon

Jeff Jarvis on Nicholas Kristof's article in The New York Times today about the likelihood of a nuclear device being set off in Times Square.

You can't tell me we don't live continuously with a very depressing, low rumbling feeling of completely insecurity and terror under every day we simply try to get ready for work, take care of our children, just go about our lives. And this Bush administration doesn't add to any warm fuzzy feelings of security. They add terror to terror it seems to me. Some "new normal" -- I can do without it.

I hadn't read Jeff's own personal account of 9/11 until recently -- a must read -- as he got off the NJ Path train right in the middle of the World Trade Center disaster.
