Thomas Friedman has an excellent piece over at The New York Times regarding the (lack of) White House stance on the sniper.

Wars of Nerves (via zazoo):

“The fact that the president speaks only about Iraq, while his neighbors down the street speak only about the shooter, reinforces the sense that this administration is so obsessed with Saddam it has lost touch with the real anxieties of many Americans. Mr. Bush wants to rally the nation to impose gun control on Baghdad, but he won’t lift a finger to impose gun control on Bethesda, six miles from the White House.”

Word is Born muses about the sniper, and I can only imagine that Brain Flossing will too, sooner or later (hint, hint).


Is there a link to the Thomas Friedman article at nytimes?

Probably. Is there a reason why the link in my post won’t work? (It’s linked on the title of the article: “Wars of Nerves”)
