  You know, if there was ever a time for good old consciousness raising, it
surrounds the possibility of a staged terrorist attack, not so much "staged"
as "allowed to happen" or perhaps even provoked . . . is the American public
ready to be told that it should be on highest alert lest their leaders stage
a new 9/11 -- some one is already introducing legislation that any new major
terrorist attack be followed immediately by two months of  'state of siege'
suspension of civil liberties, etc. and of course elections.  Wouldn't a
major 'conscientizacion'  on this theme seem important.  The very statistics
indicate that there is probably a larger percentage (30?) who really do
believe the government is in the hands of criminals who don't believe in the
democratic process.  When the iron is hot ? ? ?
