Yay @nathanlump on @brianlehrer. I'd say travel MORE important in crises: see real local reaction, how regular ppl cope, not media image.

@BrianLehrer The daily risk of crime in most American cities is still more dangerous than the threat of terror attacks.

@BrianLehrer I think all NY'ers know we can't let the fear of terrorism shadow our lives. The threat is always there & we are always ready.
