So, Do You Feel Lucky Punk?
Wired has published a nicely written short essay by Thomas P. M. Barnett:
Rule breakers. Lone riders. The United States may be founded on individual rights and the rule of law, but Americans love Dirty Harry and his literary and cinematic brethren... President George W. Bush embraced this archetype. "I want justice," he said a few days after 9/11, refering to Osama bin Laden. "There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, Wanted: Dead or Alive."
This montage didn't really come out as I wanted it to. I better keep my day job ;-)
Here's a link to the orginal poster before I tried to stich Dubya in.
