The 9-11 Terror Commission’s Missing Recommendation

By Joe Buff on Aug 27, 2004 - 8:41:00 PM
Rise up, “Little People!”  Rebel!  Revolt!  Think of a Congress and a Senate where there are no Republicans or Democrats.  They’re all Independents, and they’re all untouchable by lobbyists, special interest groups and big business because no one has an influence over their vote on any issue except their own constituency.

Take heart “Little people,” and “Little groups.”  You do have a chance to make a difference in this world.  This “Little group” (of 10) 9-11 Commission members are changing the face of American politics, from the President and Congress down.   I just wish they had included the new pronunciation guide for our state: “Cal-eeeeee-forn-yah!”

Are you blameless in the 9-11 disaster?  Were you--or are you-- too busy living the good life to even care?  The 9-11 Report is in, but there’s a serious underlying structural problem not mentioned because it’s beyond their scope.

By Joe Buff on Aug 6, 2004 - 7:53:00 PM


Unless you’ve been skiing in Siberia, where the snow is nice this time of year with a heat wave in the high 20s, or scuba diving in the Caribbean, where there are no newspapers, radios, or TVs down in the ocean depths, you know what “The Report” is.  How important is The Report? 

Just When The 9-11 Terror Commission Thought It Couldn't Get Any Worse...

By Joe Buff on Jul 9, 2004 - 12:35:00 PM


 The 9-11 Terror Commission members thought the worst was over. In disbelief they had listened in disbelief to the FBI, CIA, NSA, and Attorney General Ashcroft.  What could possibly be worse than what they had already heard?  The answer was the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

  The New Cat Burglars of Los Angeles

By Joe Buff on Mar 5, 2004 - 12:05:00 PM


     Felis domestica, if you recall your Latin.   You don’t?  How about a carnivore of the family Felidae: lions, tigers, leopards, and ordinary domestic cats.  There are many similarities between the big cats and the little cats, but all cats have one trait in common: “stealth.”  Big or small, cats are born with stealth.  They proudly wear the word like a badge of honor.
