What are the best middle-brow / high-brow "think-pieces" you've read on the topics of: the macropolitical consequences of 9/11; relations between the West and "the rest" after 9/11; and how "we" (whoever "we" may be) think of "ourselves" after 9/11?

2 minutes in the penalty box for excessive use of "finger quotes".

Joan Didion's article in the New York Review is good (still up at www.nybooks.com).

Robert Wright's great nine-part "A Real War on Terrorism" from Slate.

Thomas Friedman had an NY times editorial, "Additcted to 9/11", that I think hits it on the head.
