Randy,

Honorable post, thank you.

But I sincerely doubt Mr. Diffey realizes just how closely his thought 
processes mirror the thoughts of those who did this.

Precisely.  We can't allow hate to breed hate.  By all means hunt down 
the folks responsible -- but let's not overreact and forget about 
"innocent until proven guilty", civil liberties, respect for human 
beings, and common sense.  If we do, the terrorists will have won.
