"New Vigilance"

As the U.S. girds for war in the Middle East, the government has prepared National Guardsmen here for the worst by reminding the mostly part-time soldiers to get their wills, life insurance and other affairs in order.

The notice, emailed Friday in the form of an internal memo, also recommended guardsmen start wearing their dog tags in case they are called to respond to more terrorist attacks in the U.S.

Armed guards may be almost as much a part of air travel as pilots and flight attendants as the government rushes to get hundreds of new marshals on board airliners.

Hundreds of other marshals are being recruited, many of them retired law enforcement officials. Some private security firms, whose employees serve as air marshals for foreign airlines, are being asked for help as well.

While the U.S. Justice Department seeks new surveillance power to track down terrorists, some conservatives are casting a skeptical eye on what they see as an erosion of civil liberties.

But new research indicates that in many instances historian Michael A. Bellesiles simply twisted the facts to fit his own agenda ..."

It was September 14. Washington, DC, had been attacked, and one of its most prominent monuments had been burned by the enemy. A Washington lawyer sat in the early morning gloom and fretted over the fate of his country.

The year was 1814, the burned monument was the White House, the man was Francis Scott Key, and his worry was centered on Fort McHenry....

The first stanza expressed Key's anxious concern for his country. The second expressed his elation as he saw the banner rise. He saw the death of the enemy as proof of justice. Thus, his third stanza....

Don't arm "just" because of attack.

KABA NOTE: She goes on to say, "We are also extremely disturbed and saddened by recent fatal shootings and other incidents of gun violence directed at individuals of Middle Eastern descent or appearance around the country. In this highly emotional time, Americans must resist in engaging in the same hatred and ignorance that fostered the unspeakable acts of September 11."

In the movie "Rob Roy" there is a wonderful scene in which the hero is asked by his sons, "What is honor?" Rob responds, "Honor is something no one can give you and no one can take away. It is a man's gift to himself."
