A reminder

THERE was a child went forth every day;  
And the first object he look’d upon, that object he became;  
And that object became part of him for the day, or a certain part of the day, or for many years, or stretching cycles of years.

-- Walt Whitman


We're going to be at this for a very long time.

It also suggests that the best way of dealing with terrorism might just be to say "as long as your schools are teaching this kind of nonsense, foreign aid is right off the table." Might get people's attention in a hurry.

But I guess that's too obvious. Sigh.
