Martial Law: Coming to a city near you?

Tacitus has a post suggesting that the warnings about a terrorist attack this summer are a prelude to the Bush administration declaring martial law after an attack. See this Boston Globe article by the AP's Curt Anderson or this Buzzflash article by Maureen Farrell.

I'm not sure what to think. But I do fear that the end of the Republic is nigh. Then again, most of the things I spend my time worrying about never come to pass.

I guess it's my egotism that makes me feel that if I stop trying to fix the world, things will fall apart. Things seem to be falling apart anyway, so I'm not doing very well here...
