Five years

Well it's been five years now. That's five whole years of mourning, mud-slinging, profiteering, paranoia, war, and Goverment-induced racism and fear. You can't really avoid this strange anniversary at the moment. I've just watched the first half of "The Path to 9/11", a dramatisation of US intelligence between the original WTC bombing in 1993 and 2001. It's not bad, but it does seem to suggest that everything can be blamed on Bill Clinton's winky. Hmm.

Here's a few other ways to reflect:

Rare scenes from 9/11 – David Friend's new book of little-known photos from the New York attacks, including the above shot by Thomas Hoepker.

The New Towers – Tropolism has pics and comments about the four buildings filling the shoes of the WTC.

Graphic terror – Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón's graphic adaptation of the 9/11 Report. Does not feature any Presidential genitalia.
