"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

2,996 Tribute Project

It's been an odd/off morning, which basically began with one of the first things I read.

It was a post regarding a tribute to the victims of 9/11, consisting of 2,996 bloggers paying tribute to one each of the 2,996 people slain that day.

Suffice it to say, I've spent the day thoughtfully, but not productively.

The post I discovered was at Bennings Writing Pad:

D. Challener Roe has created a challenge for Bloggers: a memorial to the victims of 9/11. The idea is that one blogger will write a post for each of the 9/11 victims and post that remembrance on 9/11/06. Well, why don't I let D.C.Roe speak: "2,996 is a tribute to the victims of 9/11.

On September 11, 2006, 2,996 volunteer bloggers will join together for a tribute to the victims of 9/11. Each person will pay tribute to a single victim.

We will honor them by remembering their lives, and not by remembering their murderers.

If you would like to help out, either by pledging to post a tribute on your own blog, or by offering your services to promote this cause, just leave a comment here and I’ll email you the name of a victim.

Then, on 9/11/2006, you will post a tribute to that victim on your blog."
