Only there's a little difference between tense (with reason) American
being aboard an airplane acting in an uncivil manner and thousands of Arab
persons, terrorist groups, with support from Arab Governments, conceiving
and acting upon a semi-successful plot to kill thousands of American
people, destroy prominent buildings in America, wreak havoc upon our
economy and take down our democratic government. The fourth plane, as
some of you will recall, never reached it's final destination, which
obviously was to have been the Capitol or the White House.
As for the percentage of Americans who get their news from radio, I cannot
say. I, myself, never tune it to talk radio, but I do listen to NPR every
day on my way to work.
