2996 Reaches 2996

The memorial project has signed up 2,996 bloggers, one for each victim of 9/11. There is little information on the web for some of these people other than the fact that this is when and how they died. I’m hoping these 2,996 tributes will leave a lasting internet footprint describing each person as something more than a victim doing his or her job on the worst day.

May they rest in peace.

24 Wins the Big One…

… what Ace said. Mike Lief tells me that the show skews to the right in that Jack’s nemeses are usually foreign terrorists, but this year the enemy is the President of the United States and the Academy suddenly goes nuts for it? I definitely question the hell out of the timing. The cliffhanger led us to believe the Chinese will be on the seat next year. We’ll see. Congratulations to Kiefer Sutherland, but I was really hoping Jean Smart would take home the Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy for her role as the president’s wife. She was fantastic.
