» Six Years Later from A Blog For All
It has been six years since that fateful morning. Dawn rose over the New York metro area and it was a gloriously bright and sunny morning. The sky was blue without a cloud in the sky. Lower Manhattan's skyline was dominated by the World Trade Center'... [Read More]

Amen, to that brother.

What's that? I don't remember.

Those blue lights were the best monument I have ever seen. Everyone everywhere knows what they mean. Iconic simplicity, beautiful. Bummer about the ducks' messed up migration tho.

I really like the lights, as well. After the attack, I was really hoping that the towers would be built again, but even taller. The lights seem to do that.

It'll be cool to see the new buildings...anyone know when they're scheduled to be completed?

Screw the people who own the lease on the site. The city should turn it into a park and put those lights in as a permanent memorial to be shown every September.

Listen Angrier, parks our nice but Freedom Towers are even nicer! Oh, and I'm not paying 10mil a month on vacant land right now to not make a profit down the road...I mean I do have a 99 year lease on that dirt and that dirt is some of the most prized real estate in the world.
Thousands of people died in Berlin, Tokyo, Paris and London during WWII and they rebuilt. Why shouldn't we? Are American's special or something? It's sort of like those damn wooden crosses on High Ways...I'm sorry about those personal tragedies but do we really have to fill every stretch of road up with memorial after memorial? We have grown soft I tell ya! The dead ain't special, they're just dead.

I think Larry isn't very good at the Internets. ;)

For the record, the next 9-11 truth person I see on the street won't need a conspiracy theory to explain what happened to him.

Thanks for the post, Brendan. Much appreciated.


Here is some 9/11 conspiracy theory de-bunking based solely on logic:

1). The planes were flown into the buildings by remote control.

Explain where the pilots and people on the planes went.

2). The Pentagon was hit with a cruise missile.

If the government was so damn good at flying remote control planes into the WTC, why the hell would they risk being discovered by flying a cruise missile instead of a plane into the Pentagon?

3). Flight 93 was shot down in the air.

Which would have made the government appear to be responsive and effective at defending Americans. Why the hell would they lie about that?

4). Also, if the Bush Administration was so good at staging 9/11, it would have been advantageous for them to stage the much easier tasks of killing Bin Laden (who is supposedly an actor or not a threat) and finding WMD in Iraq (by planting them there).
