    Default 9/11 Anniversary

    Not here to debate anything, just thought that the day itself, and all the people tragically killed, deserved to be remembered. God bless America, andI'll say a little prayer for everyone tonight.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...

    It's still so fresh in mind, it feels like yesterday.

    An interesting side note: Yesterday, on the noon news on the Cincinnati ABC affiliate, there was one of those satellite interviews with actor Elijah Wood, to promote his new movie "9". The anchorwoman said, "You've been to Cincinnati before, for an interesting reason" and he told the story of flying from NYC to LA the morning of 9/11, and that his plane was forced to land at Cincinnati, where he spent 4-5 days until he could continue his journey.

    There's a documentary about all the transatlantic flights that landed at Gander, Newfoundland, with thousands of travelers spending days in that tiny town... which provided a warm welcome and tried to make their stay more comfortable.

    I saw that documentary. Very good stuff. I was talking about it to a co-worker and asked if she would open her home to a stranded stranger and she didn't think that she would.

    It's a good example of how small town people are just different from people who live in larger cities.
