Right now I feel secure in my condo which is only, like 10 miles, from the White House, but in a different state. Pennsylvania Avenue has been blocked. Security heightened around WH. Picture of President Obama on the telephone, with an aide by his side. I am glad I am not in Boston, however. Where I am, security consciousness is high and we don’t like disasters. I am NOT interested in driving into DC right now so I can go on a tour of the White House. That is really low on my list of priorities. I do, however, want to know the meaning of this attack and the heightened anxiety it has produced. I’m gonna sit tight, nice and snug in my closet-sized apartment, and hunker down here.
The question is: Has America been attacked?
