On the Need for Research --
Posted as a comment to this Daily Kos Science Sunday post

The current administration favors people who are uncreative.

I could come up with dozens of ways for terrorists to affect this country....go to LA and trace how water is brought in to supply southern California, then destroy that infrastructure....target Las Vegas during a convention that has symbolic worth....suicide bombings at a dozen or so randomly selected polling places across the country the morning of Election Day to disrupt voting....the list goes on....

It is good for intelligent people to think about these sorts of matters. It will spur them to think about solutions. Given the current administration's inability to think with foresight and long-term planning, I'd like for someone else to consider what needs to be done and researchers and academics seem like a good group of people to do some alternative thinking.
