Morning's best headline: Zombie Caterpillars Rain Death From Treetops.
("Dear USAF 7th Bombardment Wing(H), SAC, please be advised that 'Mors Ab Alto' appears to have been in previous use by a gypsy moth caterpillar parasite." Does that seem right to you?)
Stossel on Federal and public response to 9/11: "...government failed on 9/11, and yet the politicians' answer to failure is always the same: Give us more money and power." In Reason, Ronald Bailey runs the numbers on the odds of J. Random U. S. Civilian being terrorismed to death and concludes you need to buy struck-by-lightning insurance first.
True, and yet -- I was more comfortable with the caterpillars.
