NSA? PRISM? Every devil everywhere smiles the broadest of smiles every time he hears an American say, “I have nothing to hide.”

It seems irrational to criticize the government for its failure to “connect the dots” before 9/11, and 12 years later criticize the government for making an effort to do so.

Saving the Day
Together, we can make the world a better place
I met a hero at a Burger King.
In the parking lot, unknown to me, I had a flat tire. The man came out of the restaurant, pointed out my problem and proceeded to open the trunk of my car, took out the tools and the spare tire, got down on his hands and knees, and changed my tire. It was hard work.
He would not accept any money. “Just your prayers,” he said.
How much to learn from that man. What a great world we would have if this were our mantra: Pass it on.
Arlene Baker, Minneapolis
