September 11, 2004


Here are links and articles we collected immediately after 9-11, but before we had the blog. Many will likely be dead by now (if you put a comment I'll try to take dead ones down), but all are reminders of what mattered to us then and it's interesting to see things like the contoversies (remember the argument over how many Muslims there are in America) and especially to see things like how the Left declared defeat in Afghanistan too.

Please also let us know in the Comments if any of the ones you read are particularly good--like this one, The Queen's Tears. (Mark Steyn, September 17, 2001, National Review)--we'll try to separate them out and post them or if you see other stuff elsewhere today that should be added. Thanks.:
