D.C. Roe is looking for 2,996 websites to carry the 9/11 banner you see in the right column. The objective is to have them in place by September to commemorate the anniversary date. At the last count 1,026 had signed up, about half representing countries other than the US.
Michael T. Wholey was a resident of Westwood, NJ, who worked for the Port Authority at the World Trade Center and died in the line of duty. He was married with three children.
Maura describes her cousin, Mike, as energetic. He worked double shifts, mowed the lawn, did laundry, took the neighborhood kids to the park. Maura says he never took anything too seriously.
Friends and family thought well enough of Mike to create the Michael T. Wholey Foundation. Funded by an annual memorial golf outing, the foundation provides scholarships to college students. The website has the updated details.
You did good, Mike. And it wasn't just on 9/11.
The events of 9/11 event have been re-created by those of a conspiratorial bent to fit their particular style of paranoia. Case in point being the airline crash into the Pentagon.
Relying on a blurred image from a video and a few selected photographs, it has been said that a missile hit the Pentagon instead of a plane. Facts cited include a curious hole in the side of the building and the lack of any jet debris. Offered here in evidence is a better explanation.
This video recreates the attack on the Pentagon and is among the best I've seen depicting the recreation of an event. A missile could not have damaged light poles spread so far apart. And, here's a few items missing from the conspiracists websites - airplane parts.
