Stretcher asks: “How do you imagine your life will change if the United States attacks Iraq?”
Carol Lemmon: I would be a lot more fearful about what’s going to happen here in this country. If we start having gas rationing, everything will go up in an inflationary spiral. I can live without my automobile, but I can’t think of anything more terrible than what it must be like in Baghdad right now, waiting for the bombs to fall. What if we were waiting for them to bomb San Francisco? The threat of terrorism would become much more profound, I wouldn’t be able to put my blinders on and think that my life is about going to work and my pleasures.
