I can’t imagine how someone could get it in their head that former Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano was such a tyrant that it would be a good idea to kill some T.S.A. officers in retaliation two months after she resigned. Whether it was Drudge or some other cog in the Mighty Right-Wing Wurlitzer, deliberately trying to make people angry and paranoid will have negative consequences, including moral ones.
