United We Fall

Here first the duties of to-day, the lessons of the concrete
Wealth, order, travel shelter, products, plenty;
As of the builiding of some varied, vast, perpetual edifice,
Whence to arise inevitble in time, the towering roofs, the lamps,
The solid planted spires tall shooting to the stars.
Whitman, The United States To Old World Critics.

El rage que hay en USA por la película United 93 es comprensible: es el primer documental en serio sobre los eventos del 9/11. Se trata de una mirada desde adentro del Cuarto Avión, el que cayó sobre los campos Pennsylvania. A mí no me gustan las conspiracy theories, pero la versión oficial, que recoge la película, de una pelea adentro del avión contra los terroristas, no es muy compatible con mi propia idea de la naturaleza humana. Es difícil pensar que tus probabilidades de sobrevivir son mayores luchando con gente que está en control del avión que quedándote sentadito especulando con que decidan cambiar de planes, o con que no sean los mismos terroristas que acaban de derribar las torres (según te cuentan por el celular).

Hace un tiempo estuve leyendo un site dedicado especialmente al Flight 93. Es información oficial, dicha por Cheney, que "the Pentagon had OK'd a shootout" ante un avión peligroso. Por eso me resulta inconcebible que en ninguno de los reviews de United 93 que leí mencionen siquiera la posibilidad de que el heorísmo de los pasajeros sea un cuento chino, y que en verdad lo bajaron. Te estoy hablando, entre otras, de las críticas del New York Times o del Economist. Yo entiendo que ante ciertas tragedias el valor de la verdad es relativo, pero un poco de rigor muchachi!

The product, according to the brand, can be applied throughout the day
on dry hair if one's hair is medium to very coarse. Before you go for them, try products at Keranique for hair care. Generally, these products are more expensive than their watered-down counterparts, but you can find a few affordable pure silicone hair products (see below).

Therefore, if you wanted to specifically look for CNN News,
it is right there in its own directory on the
front webpage. Some Local News papers/journals/ tabloids/Magazines focus on regional happenings and target
local audiences/ readers. They’re the real Mc - Coy and are as old as the date on their front
page. He proudly displays a disdain for homosexuals,
especially those that are HIV-positive, by stating that they should be sequestered away from the rest
of Frances moral society. A writer in San Francisco can read a story in New York at 3:00 AM (EST) and have it
ready to go in his own paper for the Midnight (PST)

Repairing Small Cracks in concrete Floors: Determine the Damage.
Concrete finishing is very much like smoothing out frosting on a birthday cake.
Say we are laying out a simple home 30' x 45'; if the last dimension was
forty feet instead of forty-five then the cross corner measurement would be fifty feet.
