Exactly why people are more afraid of terrorism than the

bad stuff that happens every day all across America. So much of everyday American crime IS very predictable and, therefore, most reasonably cautious folks can reliably avoid falling victim to a huge volume of "those types of crimes". Not so the random crimes committed by terrorists and whack jobs that typically cannot be predicted, thus striking deep-seated fear in most people's hearts.

The disconnect there is that it is a FACT that you're far more likely, by the numbers alone, to be killed or injured during a "regular old crime" than any terrorist attack, but people are typically terrified, far in excess of the likelihood, of falling victim to a terrorist attack.

Just like people who are terrified of flying. We are FAR more likely to die in a car accident than in a plane crash -- by a crazy huge percentage difference
