Adam Gopnik on terrorism

"The worst of both readings of what is happening is surely true. The terrorists are psychopathic and shrewd, nihilistic and rational, glorying in death for death's sake while still calculating whom to kill, with what effect, when". (Not Scared, New Yorker 25 July)

Blimey! Did somebody call for Mr Dostoevksy?
