      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

A day of remembrance? We won’t ever forget. I just saw Paul Simon sing, “Sounds of Silence” with just him and a guitar at ground zero and it was very moving.

A woman who lost her policeman son that day vented a bit on Fox a few minutes ago on this day September 11th 2011. She contends that he was a hero but he also loved his life. As a former Marine, he would have obeyed an order to evacuate. She contends there was a breakdown in communications that day, because he would have evacuated if so ordered.

The day Jihadists fear should be 9/11. As a fitting retribution we should kill as many Islamic Jihadists as possible every 9/11.

What are the statistics? How many have we eliminated since 9/11/2001? Not enough. May they all rot in hell.

Peter,

What a poignant song, and fitting for emotions of loss and hope.

I watched the U.S. Eagles open their Rugby World Cup campaign in New Zealand yersterday. The US Anthem always gets to me, but this time "...that the Flag was still there..." touched me deeper than before.
