I'm curious how various newspapers around the country have commemorated today. Madison's State Journal had an all-black front page, save for two burning white candles, spaced so as to look WTC-ish. I thought it was ridiculous. I don't want to have to turn the page to read news, you know. (Am I lazy, or what?)If *I* were the editor, I'd have listed the people killed on 9/11, or the soldiers from Wisconsin who've died in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Madisonman: Then you should browse through the pages here. I like the ones from the Kane County Chronicle, in Kane Co., Ill. and the Daily News, in NYC. But I think the best one is the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
How could I ever forget?
jurist, thanks, and Yes, that Pittsburgh paper is good -- I was wondering what the heck it was in the thumbprint version, but when I downloaded the whole thing...Wow! Someone spent time on that!Not a lotta mention overseas, although I noted a picture of the WTC on the front page of a paper from the UAE.
It was sobering this morning when the flood of emotions returned watching some of the broadcast footage from five years ago prior to leaving for work. Then, the emotions quickly shifted as I checked the Google news page and saw this headline.There are times I wonder...
Yo, Ann, can you turn the vibrator off now?Thanks...
Yo, Dave, do you really think your "side" wants to be represented like that -- basically, wanting to forget what these images mean?
Dave,Thanks for the moving tribute on this day. With all the media commemorations, it's hard to come up with something that really stands out, but you certainly have.
Dave:It strikes me that you're the one acting like a wanker.Musta been a Freudian slip in your part.
I have some 2001 front pages and covers stored away in a box in my attic from the day after and for a while afterward, but haven't dug 'em out in ages. We're preparing to go into heaving cleaning out mode in anticipation of a move, but I can't imagine being able to pitch those.
I said:"There are times I wonder... 9:11 AM, September 11, 2006And almost on queue (ok-2 hours later):dave said... Yo, Ann, can you turn the vibrator off now?Thanks... 11:07 AM, September 11, 2006 Thus re-enforcing my thoughts ten-fold.Yes. We are a nation divided. But if dave represents the alternative, I'll pass!
I cannot get the sound of bagpipes out of my head today.
Yeah, I thought the vibrator comment was priceless. Here we have the anniversary of the day when thousands of honorable Americans died and billions of dollars of American property were destroyed. There is lots of maudlin tribute out there. But maudlin beats tasteless every day, all the time. I also love how the lefties are looking to score points against President Bush on this day. Brilliant! Just absolutely brilliant. That's going to go over well with the average voter you claim to speak for. What other gags are there?
Quote:As much of the world marked Sept. 11 by remembering the 2001 attacks on the United States, India celebrated it as a day of peace _ the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mohandas K. Gandhi's philosophy of peaceful resistance.
The Daves of the Internet get overlooked when the media explores the "netroots" phenomenon that is supposedly transforming politics in 2006. If the Dems come up short, I wonder if someone at the New York Times will have the nerve to go back and quote all the Daves out there and raise the question of whether the "netroots" ended up scaring people away from the candidates they support.
Because, as the Daves never seem to realize, there are many of us who once we really see a Deborah Fritsch or Ward Churchill or Kevin Barrett or Markos Moulitsas in all their glory, we think "whatever you are for, I'm against it."If this means voting against a Democrat after voting for no one but Democrats for 20 years, then so be it.
