What can I say that hasn�t already been said? I�m sick with grief, enraged, exhausted. I�m more angry now than I�ve ever been with those who persist in believing in make-believe supernatural deities. Such people did this thing (largely to impress and win the favor of their god). Such people will now retaliate (in the name of Jesus) and countless more innocent people will suffer. I feel like I might deck the next person who says �American lives� with emphasis on the "American". It�s LIVES, you jingoistic morons! People have died. By the thousands. People who were not personally responsible for making anyone suffer. Now it will happen again as we seek retribution. What we should be doing is trying to find ways to make our people safe. Instead, we will waste our energy on vengeance.

Good old vengeance. Which brings back the dead, and makes everything OK. I�m just sick with all of this.

Nobody is really sure that this was done by Muslims or for the sake of *any* deity.

Please tell me that I am not the only one who thinks the copy of the Koran and the Arabic-language flight manual in some passenger's lost luggage were just a little too conveniently found *right* after the disaster. If real evidence had been found, I also doubt it would have been leaked to the news media while the investigation was still in its preliminary stages.

And I'm not saying "The Truth is Out There." I'm saying the truth is irrelevant. The only reason for finding a source of blame is in order to punish. Keep it from happening again? The punishment of some designated group of bad guys or even *proven* group of perpetrators is no proof against future senseless attacks. It may even make such attacks seem like an even better idea -- wanna launch America into chaos and panic? wanna see people going off half-cocked wanting to declare "war" when they don't even know that any given government or governments are even in a position to be held responsible for the precipitating event? Hey, just blow up some prominent symbols and use commercial airliners full of people to do it. Then stand back and wait. No need even to claim responsibility. The job is done.

Not a sermon; just a thought.
