a symptom of,    and a metaphor for,    something far broader





The madness of the Outer Banks seems like

a symptom of, and a metaphor for,

something far broader:

the US is in denial about what is, beyond any question,

potentially its most dangerous enemy.

While millions of words have been written

every day for the past two years

about the threat from vengeful Islamic terrorists,

the threat from a vengeful Nature

has been almost wholly ignored.

Yet the likelihood of multiple attacks in the future

is far more certain.

Road to ruin,
