SPEAKING OF INNOCENTS BETRAYED ... In all the Washingtonian and New Yorkian melodrama, hand-wringing, and scripture-quoting this morning, no politician dared name the truth: that four or five guns in the hands of airline passengers could have saved 3,000 lives two years ago.
Arming pilots isn't enough. And yet the administration stalls at taking even that small step. The administration that pretends to mourn while denying us even that much protection from evil, should taste gall and bile when it mouths its pious words of sorrow.
