In the aftermath of the events of Sept. 11, America has been attacked from every conceivable angle--not by bioterrorists but by its own news organizations. Under the guise of "America's need to know," the media have saturation-bombed our minds with images of "what if," as in, "What if the terrorists attack the water supply?" or "What if the terrorists target the nuclear power plants?" Is this reporting or terrorism in the name of ratings? In the days following Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, taking the long view of history, the consensus is that we were truly fortunate that the Japanese high command did not know how much devastation it had caused.

Bob Dylan is singing "The Times They Are A-Changin' " in a television ad for healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente these days, and who could argue? With Led Zeppelin pitching Cadillacs, the Rolling Stones strutting in an Ameriquest Mortgage ad and Paul McCartney warbling for Fidelity Investments, it's clear that the old counterculture heroes of classic rock are now firmly entrenched as the house band of corporate America.

Prosecutors in the Randy Steven Kraft murder trial say a paper with 61 entries, found in his car trunk when he was arrested May 14, 1983, is a death list--Kraft's own score card of how many young men he had killed dating back to late 1971. Kraft's attorneys deny it is a death list, and call it meaningless information that will only inflame his jury. Kraft himself, in a 1983 interview, called the list nothing more than references to friends of his and his roommate at the time.
