Reader comment on item: U.S. Improvising on Security Five Years After 9/11

Submitted by Bryan Taplits (United States), Feb 6, 2007 at 10:36

I just wanted to "thank you" again for sending me your E-mails on the terrorist threat. Each time I read one of your articles I say to myself, "My. What a fine analyst he is."

As for your symposium article in NR, I would just add to your conclusion that the Conservative/Liberal divide extends even to the daily values that US citizenship embraces. For instance, Conservatives take their personal security much more seriously and are much more vigilant in their everyday activities than are liberals.

Thus, though each may wear rose-colored glasses--- Conservatives realize it, but Liberals don't.
