My Dream Last Night 

I had a dream last night that I was watching the game show, Jeapardy. The question Alex Trebeck asked was this:"Who is a threat to the United States?"

One contestant said, "Iraq".

"Wrong," Trebeck said.

Next contestant said, "Al Queda".

Everyone in the audience clapped to this answer, thinking it was the correct one. However, Trebeck said, "Not Al Queda". Then, I woke up, before the correct answer was given.

I was left to ponder, in the early morning light, our true threats. At first, I wanted to say North Korea. But its too easy. They view us as a threat, I am guessing, as much as we view them.

I came to this conclusion: the true threat to the United States is, ourselves, ourselves, ourselves.
