Five years ago today, I was working at my computer, just as I am now, when I noticed an item in the news, saying something about an airplane crashing into the World Trade Center. Immediately I turned on the TV, figuring there would be live coverage of this story, if it were true. There was live coverage in progress, and I started watching it just in time to see the second airplane crash into the towers. One airplane could possibly have been an accident, or perhaps the work of one deranged person. (Remember the Egyptian pilot a few years ago who deliberately crashed his plane into the ocean, for no apparent reason?) But two airplanes crashing into the World Trade Center at almost the same time: This must be a terrorist plot!
