I know enough psychology to know that fear is often the root emotion of anger. My posts on the sequester exhibit more than a little anger. Rage is not too strong a word. Why am I so terrified? I tremble at the barbarians’ rejection of what I had always assumed were unquestioned verities like the sanctity and beauty of our federal judicial system.
It remains to be seen whether this old man’s terror is well-founded, but I won’t have to wait long for an answer. The answer is coming quickly like the metaphorical train in the tunnel.
