    Which is easy to do when there's no longer any hard physical evidence to counter. Many of those involved - that is, senior fire and police officials, experts, those involved in engineering the structure - are now dead. Many more have faulty recollection.

    This is how the coming generation "changes the world." With lies and rumors and agitation. Now we're going to rewrite the whole thing having Dick Cheney planting demolitions charges in the towers.

    I get SO sick of the idiocy of SO many people. Another board, I was called a "liar" because I confused a Ford pickup trim with a Chevrolet. I was cursing those Coal-Rollers...who makes the Duramax diesel (as opposed to the OTHER stinking, smoking, idiot-truck engines) doesn't really MATTER. But I had it wrong so I was a "liar." As well as being racist-sexist-homophobe...yada, yada.

    There is no discussing anything with such types because they have no critical-thinking abilities. That is why they're glomming on to socialism. They can't examine what happened to other people who did the same thing. They can't examine the illogic of living fat, rich and idle with all of it paid for by a faceless "them."

    So we'll go for a second gurgling dunk in this well of stupidity. Just as the same class of imbeciles is going to take us through Trump-Russia again.

    On to the original subject.

    It changed my life. Not for the better. No, I wasn't there - I was home, with my mother...her home. Had been my childhood home. I had taken the day off to see her to the doctor. Was busy getting ready to close on a house in Buffalo, 180 miles away. But there I was, playing hookey...as was our habits, I had my iBook open, on the kitchen table, phone cord going to the wall phone...reading the WSJ and Washington Times editorials. My mother was in the front room watching the CNN idiots. Bad habit of hers.

    I brought her a fresh coffee, and she said, "A plane hit the World Trade Center."

    I thought of the incident in the 1940s where a four-person private plane plowed into the Empire State Building. "Could have been lost in the fog," I said.

    The nature of the chatter changed. And I noticed my internet connections were slowing. That wasn't unusual in those days...but as I brought something else out, I saw CNN had moved from the chattering heads to a live-nooze desk. Cameras were on the towers, one on fire...and as we watched, the second plane slammed in.

    "...Just...wild..." my mother said.

    It was about two hours later, downtown Cleveland was evacuated. There was a real fear, for about five hours, that other skyscrapers, in other areas, could be targeted. Cleveland has three massive towers downtown. Essentially all normal business stopped that day. Including railroad traffic - the place looked like one long crime scene, our entire district. County and state police patrolling the tracks; HazMat slowed to 30 mph; other freight held out of the way.

    For three weeks it looked like that would pull the nation together. The Left thought so, too - they've been on the move ever since.
