Today is the tenth anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City, which killed 168 people. It remains the second-largest terrorist attack on American soil, and its effects are still being felt today. This is what I wrote about Oklahoma City three years ago. We must never forget.

I always get steamed when the politician de jour decides it is ok to begin slamming bureaucrats as if they were the embodiment of all that is wrong in America. Let's never forget that many of those who died, beyond the absolutely innocent children and teachers in the building, were every day citizens who had chosen a career of public service. When politicians today make linkages between federal judges and the actions of a few madmen they are treading on the same ice that the possees, militias and their fellow travellers walk. Linking federal government workers to some Zionist conspiracy, one could argue, is part and parcel of the same mindset.
