Editorial: The horrifying attack on Paul Pelosi is an attack on democracy
The media are too quick to declare that the death of Paul Pelosi is the second-worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. This may be true, but it will be followed with a number of horrific attacks to be the third-worst. The first one was 9/11, and the one that preceded this was the war in Vietnam.

This is a great opportunity to stand against terrorists and their agendas. If we are to be the best we can be
