To Stop Terrorism, Refuse To Be Terrorized

Security guru Bruce Schneier had a piece on his blog that quoted this interesting commentary:
At present rates, an American’s chance of being killed by a terrorist is about one in 3.5 million per year—compared, for example, to a yearly chance of dying in an automobile crash of one in 8,200. That could change, of course, if terrorists suddenly become vastly more capable of inflicting damage—as much commentary on terrorism has predicted over the past decade. But we’re not hearing much of that anymore.

Our fears aren't always based on reality.
