— Ann Brashares

I've heard bombs going off in our embassies, mobs screaming for blood, mullahs issuing death decrees, so-called leaders yelling for jihad. They've been burning books, Dave-the temperature of hate in parts of the Islamic world has gone out to Pluto. And I've been listening to them." "And you don't think we have-the people in Washington?" He said it without anger. I was at one time a leading intelligence agent and I think he genuinely wanted to know. "Maybe in your heads. Not in your gut." He turned and looked out the window.
