ABSTRACT
In this article, the author wonders if the war in Iraq had made Americans so much safer, why were all those cops out guarding Manhattan buildings. Along Fifth Avenue, tourists gawked. Parents strolled with their kids, everyone casually attired in the heat and humidity. God knows what happens next, but you had to be proud of New York last Monday, impressed by its stunning normalcy. The only unsettling moment occurred when U.S. President George W. Bush strode into the Rose Garden to say he would immediately implement some of the 9/11 commission's recommendations.
