thinking out loud. again.
Quick rush of a post, more blogging later after this busy morning winds down. [Thanks to everyone who answered my questions on this post about the planes. You were all most helpful and informative.] I'm just sitting here wondering why there is an American in Saudi Arabia whose captors claim they will kill him today unless their demands are met and no one is really talking about it. I'm sure if there were thirty people being held hostage it would be all over the news. And I'm doubly sure that if it was an American holding a prisoner hostage in Baghdad, we would have wall to wall coverage. But no, just one American guy set to be killed by terrorists. No big deal. I don't know about you, but I consider the threat of killing even one captive American a terrorist attack. Does it take 3,000 dead people to make some of you feel threatened? Does it take a whole slew of Americans held hostage for over 100 days? Do you need big numbers to see the fine print? Again, no clue. No freaking clue. If you're the praying type, pray for Paul Johnson, Jr.
