So it means it is roughly 1 World Trade Center tragedy PER MONTH, that
repeats over and over and over again each month, and the governments feel

=v= That's right. Perhaps we should start a ribbon campaign
and fly (Ecology) flags, suspend a bunch of civil liberties,
and insist that people support the economy and "Keep America
