This Week

First reaction to The Path to 9/11:

Great stuff. Absolutely captivating. Strong candidate for the Roscoe Full Bladder Award. The last 15 minutes of those two and a half hours were impossible to tear away from, despite nature's call. (We made it.) Loved the casting. George Tenet in particular was a dead ringer. Ramzi Yousef was also eerily--and wickedly--dead on. Northern Alliance commander Massoud was a winsome character, the tragedy of his death made poignantly palpable.

Can't wait for the exciting conclusion--although we don't know how or when we'll get to see it. We're flying out on 9/11 for another secret mission this week. Yeah, we know: Brave men laugh in the face of danger, but it takes a real nut to fly on 9/11. Well, look at it this way: Blowing up in the air is probably a good deal better than dying of congestive heart failure or pancreatic cancer.

All of which is also to say that posting this week will be erratic. Though we do have a laptop with a wireless card. So, where there's a wireless, there's a way...

I thought it was excellent, too. But I was so upset! My son set the digital recorder for the 2 hour broadcast on Saturday, and it ran out of room! I missed the last 20 minutes! I guess I'll have to wait till it comes out on DVD.
