More 9/11 collateral damage. The first time I see the news regarding the shooting at LAX, I quickly scan to article to see how many people were killed. When I discover that only three people were killed and one of them was the shooter, I think, “Well, hey, that’s not so bad.”
Update (7/5/2002 @ 10:42a): It appears the Stock Market appears to agree with me:
Stocks surged on Friday, snapping a six-week losing streak for the Dow Jones industrial average, as investors grabbed beaten-down issues after no major terror attacks took place as feared on the Fourth of July holiday.
