Relative Risks

Your chances of being killed by a car or a handgun are many times greater than being killed by a terrorist. Why then is so much more attention and money being spent on terrorists? I have to think it is because terrorists are sexy. Bureaucrats like Michael Chertoff with conflict-of-interest investments in scanner companies and closet fascists can stampede the public into spending billions on fancy machines and into giving up constitutional rights. Ironically, this is exactly what the terrorists want.
