Certainly thought provoking. ALthough Vidal has always been outspoken - I don\'t ever recall this level of distain.
I agree with his point about the dangers of evangelical thinking and how our gov\'s actions are reflecting such thinking. There is a flavor of over zealous patriotism in the U.S. which in part, allowed Iraq to happen. Sometimes our out of control patriotism reminds me somewhat of religious fanatics. We can only hope that the country\'s mood operates like the stock market, and we will soon undergo a healthy correction. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
