American Hero

High speed car chases - we have all seen them in Hollywood movies. The hero goes after the villian and gets him no matter what the cost. Cars crash, road side stalls get smashed, lots of near misses, and surprisingly no innocent bystander gets hurt.

Unfortunately that's not how it works in real life. Another bomb goes off and more innocent people get killed and injured.

If only George Bush had followed his wife's example and watched Desperate Housewives instead of Dirty Harry movies.
