How soon we have forgotten
9/11 — We all have our stories. I was caught 2300 miles away, with 5 children. We were to fly out that morning. We had to drive from San Diego to the Midwest — in a mini van.Along our way, we saw American Flags over every overpass. People would wave to us. Folks were handing out American Flag T shirts. We got to see this | Read More »
“I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.”
My two observations on 9/11.
First: our prayers for the dead and their families and loved ones. May the latter, especially, have the strength to get through this day, and the days the follow.Second: I’M STILL HERE, you miserable, misogynistic, homophobic, anti-Semitic, hate-filled, cowardly fantasy ideologist son-of-a-bitch. I just went out to feel the wind and the sun on my face. When’s the last time you got to do that, | Read More »

By Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report and The HinzSight ReportIf a President won’t defend America, it won’t be defended. I think this adage is driven home at a most opportune time before we choose Commanders in Chief. Does anyone doubt that President Bush benefited from the third anniversary remembrance of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against John “international test” Kerry? And | Read More »

It ended in fire and ash and tragedy. There were countless displays of courage under | Read More »

9/11 research could make fusion power breakthrough
BBC reports that research into the building collapses on 9/11 has illuminated properties of steel at high temperatures. Fusion power researchers hope that research into the effects of magnetism on very hot steel will lead to the creation of new materials that can take the heat, which would allow the construction of better nuclear fusion chambers.
That September day
My friend, James Hooker, is never at a loss for emotion on 9/11. Enjoy his thoughts.Things are seared in my memory about that day like no other event in my lifetime.

Where I Was On September 11
Until September 11, 2001, I worked in the World Trade Center, halfway up Tower One. I wasn’t doing political blogging at the time, but was writing “the Baseball Crank” as a weekly baseball column for the online edition of the Providence (R.I.) Journal. Here’s my account of that day, written for ProJo two days later while it was all still fresh; we have run this | Read More »
Today all Americans should pray.
**Never Again.With the passing years with each memorial service I’m asked to attend on this Historic day, I have to decline.As an American I am filled with hatred and vengeance for those who wish to do us harm.

Remember And Pray
[image via JohnDavidHead.com]Many crises have befallen this great Nation throughout her history. We have faced each one in turn, and dealt with them accordingly. So, too, did we come together as ONE Nation, under God, in the face of the hell that was unleashed on September 11, 2001. We moved on, but lost sight along the way of where 9/11 took us as a Nation. | Read More »
