Are We Any Safer?
The Atlantic will explore the nation’s homeland security to examine the strengths and remaining vulnerabilities of our security apparatus and our preparedness to prevent the next terrorist attack.

Since the turn of the 20th century, average life expectancy has been rising steadily. In the United States, we can now expect to live an average of three decades longer than our great-grandparents.
