Memo to Myself on India
I have little of substance to add regarding the atrocities in Mumbai of the past few days. I will note, though, that 9/11 and the ensuing 7 years have given us a stark example of how much mayhem a handful of maniacs can carry out--by letting their enemies (that's us!) self-destruct in knee-jerk paranoia. India has seen much more domestic terrorism of this sort than we have, and hopefully its people and government are better equipped psychologically than we were.
