I've seen the clips of the airplanes flying into the bulding at least 100
times, and still each time I want to think, what a great piece of special

Generally, I'm rather a peaceful man despite my interest in military

Iraq, North Korea.

On my way to work this morning I will stop at the Cathedral downtown and
light a candle for all the victims of this. I will light a second one, for
the rest of us on this planet who are good people, of any faith or


"Nature and Nature's Law lay hid in night; God said, "Let Tesla be" and
all was light."
