My oldest is a 15 year old girl...and it's homecoming season.  When I was going to high school (eons ago), I never really had a girlfriend, at least not during homecoming, so buying mums, or gifts, or going to the homecoming dance was not an issue...but now, well, let's just say I need some help and direction.

What Do Americans Think About Sacrificing Rights to Fight Terrorism After 9/11?

The terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 left an indelible mark on Americans. But even as the first responders climbed through the rubble in New York, Washington, DC and Pennsylvania, the country embarked on a “War on Terror.” With that war came years of conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq, indefinite detention of terror suspects without charges or trial, enhanced interrogation techniques, extraordinary rendition and the passage of the USA Patriot Act.
