Default The 9/11 photo they took FIVE years to publish......

The debate: did this picture show couldn't-care-less twenty-something New Yoikers (well, Brooklyn, actually) idly chatting about what was happening over the river...... as if it was some sort of Hollywood special effects movie........? Or are they simply earnestly discussing what was happening?

Fascinating stuff here:

Have you ever seriously thought about the events on that day, and in particular how is it that an object hits a building 2/3rds of the way up, yet the whole structure collapses?

OK - I wasn't peddling Conspiracy Theory No 236 - I just thought the photo, or more accurately the decision not to publish until the photographer thought America was "ready" for it - was an interesting debate in itself.

My avatar?

Kate Sheedy - a wonderfully brave young lady who survived a brutal attack by Levi Bellfield (when she refused to get into his car, he ran her over, then reversed over her) and had the courage to testify against him while he sat in court blowing kisses at her and mouthing obscenities.....

Ya, ok 1st part:
You know better to peddle/meddle-this is a worldwide Board nd 9/11 is still raw for a lot of people Agreed? Good. Move on.
2nd Part-Yes, incredibly brave young lady- I hope she gets the support she deserves when the 15 minutes of fame are over.
The Bellfield animal?- take him off and give him a jag.What say you..........

And full marks to York Univ who accepted her, based on her PREDICTED A-Level grades, while she lay in a hospital bed unable to take the actual exams.

And she's now 21 and doing well there apparently.

The 9/11 thing will always be with us - in my case, I suffered 'delayed shock' - I only found out nearly TWO YEARS later that I had lost an old friend and former colleague in the WTC (I had lost touch with him, and hadn't even realised he worked there).

Needs a whole new thread..........

I will always vehemently oppose the death penalty - but I'd listen to the arguments for the alternatives....... ALL of them.
