9/11 Remembered

Good Morning. Several pieces to mark the fifth anniversary of 9/11.
  • On Sept. 16 and Sept. 30, 2001, I wrote two essays for the News-Journal on the attacks. They're published at Candide's Notebooks for the first time: "When Barbarism Follows Barbarism," and "Manhattan the Days After." The second piece was written following a one-week assignment in Manhattan, days after the attacks.
  • Candide's Notebooks Contributor OhDave writes an affecting essay, mixing the personal with the political, on what's been lost since 2001 in "Paranoid Nation."
  • Osama has done it again: He's released a video, right on cue, ahead of the mid-term elections, as per Bush's implicit desires. Read all about the "Al-Qaeda Video Awards."
As always, keep up with the more immediate developments with Candide's Latest...
