You might wonder why someone would go on a cable news network and talk about the potential positive side of an attack by terrorists. You might also wonder what would compel the host of that show to not only decline the opportunity to denounce that suggestion, but to say that he, too, contemplated whether such a thing would be useful.
Well, this happened, and it happened this last week on a Fox News show hosted by Glenn Beck. Beck's show has been notable for its dark, ominous forebodings of coming political violence. In fact, just moments before Scheuer appeared, Beck again said it. He said he hoped it wouldn't happen, although this was just moments before intimating that last weekend he had thought through a scenario by which a major terrorist attack sparked a grass-roots revolution.
Most normal people wonder what kind of revolution is necessary. We can move about without the need
