    Longhornjok: That's really thoughtful, mentatzps. I watched 60 MINUTES II tonight as they looked back on that date with Pres. Bush and various members of his administration and I was surprised at how close to the surface my emotions were on what we all experienced 2 years ago. Let's hope no country and no families ever have to experience anything like that again.

    Thanks, mentatzps, that's very kind.

    Many of us are going to be reflective today but the lumps in our throats will keep us from getting too vocal or maudlin.

    Thanks to both Mentatzps & Stephaneparis for their thoughtfulness. It is nice to know after the shabby way this country treats its foreign allies that despite our hubris we still have friends left.

    7x6andchg: Well said, JohnTheHorse...

    Days like those (it's now the 12th) are the kind that make us realize that our countries' differences are not our own personal ones.

    Thank you for your kind words of solace.

    Paul
