We're not as terror-fied
Too furious to even feel fear.
New York Daily News - World & National Report - We're not as terror-fied:
"WASHINGTON - Four and a half years after 9/11, terror is no longer the issue on the top of Americans' minds, surpassed by the war in Iraq, immigration, fuel prices and even anger at politicians, a new poll says.
The Gallup Poll released yesterday said only 6% of Americans volunteer the issue of terrorism when asked an open-ended question on the most important problems facing the country.
That's behind 25% who say the Iraq war, 19% who pick immigration, 11% who name fuel prices and 8% who say bad government is the biggest problem.
Frank Newport, Gallup Poll editor-in-chief, cautioned that terror's low showing does not necessarily mean Americans think it's not important - only that it's not being discussed as much right now."
