The Null Device

How much has the world changed irrevocably after September 11? Not that much, according to this Times article, and most of the things that do change will do so for the better. Or so the author insists:
First and foremost, September 11 and the subsequent rout of the Taleban reminded us that religion should have no place in modern politics or diplomacy. We will all be a lot more suspicious of religious fanatics, not only of Muslims, but also of Jews who quote the Old Testament to justify their occupation of Palestine, and of Christians who claim a God-given right to attack abortion clinics.
In other words, America still lacks a President of real stature. That is another thing that hasn't changed since September 11.
