Come thou font of every blessing
I was in the middle of posting some thoughts about 9/11 when my computer crashed. Coincidence? I think not. The coincidence doesn't involve terrorists unless you believe that the authors of Microsoft Windows '98 had evil intentions.
Hmmmm. My computer does crash more often than a 3-legged dog on peyote.
I was writing about Turkey Mountain , which I used to climb regularly with my beard-bearing nemesis. From the top of Turkey Mountain, you could just barely see the tops of the WTC towers. So my connection with the WTC is a bit distant, at 40 miles from ground zero, but I've been thinking a lot about the changes in and around us since 9/11. I did more of that than usual when I took a stroll around Stacy Park in Olivette yesterday morning.
While admiring the quasi-Autumnal foliage, I heard from across the street the morning announcements from the Old Bonhomme Elementary School. The pledge was recited, a rare moment of elementary-school silence was observed, and the school then sang "America the Beautiful".
That brief homage was more moving than anything I saw on TV yesterday.
Your non-linkage from my page has more to do with my laziness than your undeservedness. I promise that if you (and Jim Tucek) aren't linked by this weekend I will drop everything and take time out from watching meaningless football games to do so.

I have seen the future that is the redesign, and lo it shall be good.

Ok, here's the new design. I hope everyone likes it.
