Topic: 9/11

Just read Quantico.
When I saw the jets hit the towers I called an assoiciate
in Texas that I had worked with in construction.
I asked if it looked like the towers were imploded
with explosives. He said yes. I agreed.
A lot of information has come out since that day.

Do you believe they fell from just the jet impact and fire?

You don't know what a relief it is to hear that you are NOT one of those "truthers". Of course, as you are a man of science and critical thinking, I am not surprised...but nevertheless, I am still relieved.

Physics are sufficient to bring down buildings. To reduce principles to rubble requires hysteria.

Even so, the way those buildings collapsed was competely unexpected to my untrained eye. Makes me realize how much stress loading plays a part in such massive undertakings! Were I describing that scene in a novel, I'd no doubt have had the buildings topple over... which the hijackers also apparently hoped for.

The surreality of the imploding collapse adds to the horror, I think. And perhaps to the disbelief some people feel about the whole situation.

I'll tell ya this: when I heard about it, I immediately thought, 'Oh, now they can write their own checks.' You know whom I mean. And they did.

Alas, we're the ones writing the checks... or will be for some time to come.
