  • Dear Editor:
    Where were you that morning in September? I always listened to my radio, but for some unknown reason, I had turned on my T.V. news station instead.
    That first plane, full of Americans when it slammed into that skyscraper was almost unable to be comprehended.
    Our news media seemed to be hysterical! Over live reports flooded our news–more planes-more structures!
    Our Pentagon! A plane had slammed into a building symbolic of America's defense system! How?
    Had America's leaders and politicians failed to recognize and realize the full extent of our enemies' hatred? What if those planes were carrying nuclear weapons? New York! Washington, D.C.! Gone! FLATTENED!
    Are we being distracted once again by nonsense? Me? Forget? Hell no!
