Political And Other Miscellany From A Stout Democrat In Dallas Texas.
"Politics is the only game for adults." --from Robert A. Heinlein's Double Star

Tuesday, September 12, 2006


Five years ago, 2973 souls perished on September 11, 2001.

2602 souls died in the World Trade Center. 24 remain listed as missing.

88 souls died on American Airlines flight 11.

59 souls died on United Airlines flight 175.

125 souls died in the Pentagon.

59 souls died on American Airlines flight 77.

40 souls died on United Airlines flight 93.

Rest in peace.

A complete timeline of all the events of that day relating to the terrorist attack begins here.

UPDATE: Naturally, we could count on Bush to exploit the memory of the crime for his own dishonest political purposes. Fortunately, Keith Olbermann promptly reamed him out totally for doing that, even citing with clips a classic episode from The Twilight Zone. You can read a transcript and (after interminable waits, because right now everybody is linking to this) view the video at Crooks and Liars. Go read and watch, and tell your family, friends, and foes!!
