Bitch on the Blog

Ramana, in the wake of your recent observations a quote which blown up, framed and hanging on one of my many walls drew my attention:

“The real danger lies not in what terrorism inflicts, but in what it provokes”. (Martin Amis on the aftermath of 9/11).




  1. This reminds me of another famous story from New York, back when the crime was completely out of control and Mayor Koch was giving a talk:

    “A judge he had helped elect had just been mugged, Koch said then, but had promised not to let the mugging affect him again. ‘Then mug him again!’ one of the senior citizens cried. ‘We’ve got to stand up to those who are mugging our cities,'”
