Afew blocks from the White House, the head of state exhorted a large crowd to war against a relentless foe that threatens to spread death on a vast scale. Members of the leader's inner circle were there, too, telling everyone in attendance: "Let the only response be a united one." A high-ranking official warned that the enemy must not be appeased, for "they will only take up arms again." No, this had nothing to do with Iraq and the Bush administration, although Laura Bush happened to be there Monday night at Constitution Hall.

My 9-year-old daughter, Nyaniso, brimmed with excitement moments before the Cheetah Girls concert at Washington's Constitution Hall a week ago. That evening was sure to eclipse the previous Thursday, when I announced that we were going and she immediately proclaimed, "This is the happiest day of my life." Yet as we sat among thousands of other children and parents, all I could think was "Whose idea was it to hold this on a school night? Doesn't this twentysomething group remember when they were Cheetah Cub Girls, when it was difficult to get them out of bed in the morning after a scarce night's sleep?"
