The recent thread about the Arizona State Militia seems to have been percolating in my head. Now it has mated (somewhat messily) with Neighborhood Watch. Neighborhood militias ought to be common in suburban and rural town neighborhoods, particularly where the police are 20 minutes or more away. How come they ain't? I seem to remember Osama being quoted as saying that terrorism should spread to rural areas, to make a point that I don't now recall.
