Peggy Noonan writes about the sounds of 9/11: The sounds of the planes hitting the buildings, the sounds of the Towers falling, and most importantly the sounds of the final messages from people who knew they were going to die and wanted to tell their husbands and wives, brothers and sisters and parents and children that they loved them one final time.
I'm a retired/disabled, semi-skilled laborer who grew up as a Roman Catholic son of liberal, card carrying union members. I've since morphed into a conservative-libertarian (small l) atheist who thinks unions have outlived their usefulness, or at least been corrupted by the NEA, AFSCME and SEIU into something that trade unionists from seventy-five to one hundred years ago wouldn't recognize. I've also never been married, don't have any kids (that I know of) and don't want any. And yet I'm a prolifer. Go figure.
