Bombings change the game

… I predict that the Boston bombings, closely following the Aurora and Newtown shootings, are a game-changer. While we are a resilient people with a collective attention deficit disorder that might cause us to put Boston’s events specifically behind us more quickly than we should, I believe that in the days ahead we are going to hear some discomforting news about the many other investigations of potential terrorists living among us, all across the nation. This is going to heighten security concerns and distract us from our societal obsession with recession. [cont.]
