Don’t miss the ultimate foodie event, The Baltimore Sun's Secret Supper

Sept. 11 and the endless war

Kudos to Dan Rodricks for his recent column in The Sun ("In anger and pain, little sympathy for the 'deaths of others"). I would have been stronger in my words, but he provided a good antidote to the unquestioning lust for war and violence, and so-called "patriotism" that has led America into this period of endless war and the national security and police state we now live in.

The mainstream corporate media, including The Sun — I thought that their editorial on the 10th anniversary of the attacks ("The legacy of 9/11," Sept. 11) was pathetic — are responsible for encouraging this unquestioning allegiance to the present corporate-national security state that keeps the citizenry fearful and powerless.
