I'm wondering if terrorists could have done worse than this or New Orleans.

While this is a big story, imagine what the coverage would be if these fires had been deliberately started by Arabs.

Or if terrorists had blown up the steam pipe in NY or flooded its subways.

Or if that Minn bridge had come down because of terrorists.

Or if the blackout in the East, remember that?, had happened on purpose.
