Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

California was an attractive place to be, that's why Europeans were there. But everything changed after 9/11.

I'm glad to see you have a post-9/11 mentality unlike so many on the left in this country! :)

Nevermind, must be an American thing. Any time a left-wing politician needs to accuse a left-wing politician in the States of something, they pull out the old "you have a pre-9/11 mentality" card. It just sounded funny when you mentioned it :)

Right wing politician in the first instance, that is.

I think I actually retain my pre-9/11 mentality. It's just that the ground shifted.

Exactly correct.

The problem with the 9/11 mentality is that it's really a 1911 mentality.

I'm hoping a 2011 mentality will be a lot more interesting.

Why not a 911 mentality?
