I don't know.

I don't know how to write my thoughts about this story and still stay within the boundaries I've set for myself in terms of profanity.

Our system of justice is going to proceed with lawsuits that scattershoot blame for the September 11th horrors. Lawsuits contending governmental agencies, building owners, aircraft makers, and any number of other people or entities should have anticipated these events.

They should have known.

That's the legal argument. They should have known.

"Hello, my name is Evil.
Here is my plan:
I will kill a few thousand of your people.
I will outrage you.
Then, I will let your lack of focus fester.
I will watch as you foment amid your freedoms.
I will immerse myself in glee as you devour yourselves."

We should know better.
