RIP William Safire

By TinSoldier - Posted on 30 September 2009

I'm surprised that no one posted this, although I confess that while it was on my mind I, too, forgot to do so the past couple of days. It was only when I wasn't logged on that I remembered the absence of a post about it.

The right will truly miss such an intellectual and thought-provoking columnist. I've certainly missed reading his columns since he retired a few years ago.

(No, I haven't started reading Huffington Post. Those are just links which came up on Google.) 

Bill Safire wrote an interesting column two days after 911. It was titled "Inside the Bunker."

911 Was An Inside Job!

Do you believe that? just wondering, I know there are alot of conspiracy theories on this. I have watched and read alot of them. One thing to me is clear, there are unanswered questions. Do I think that the Bush administration was behind it, no not really Do I think they knew about it and let it happen anyway? Um, maybe. I know that alot will question why, and how can you think that?

One reason is to change the direction of our country, (the patriot act). To keep us in perpetual fear maybe. I have always had these feelings about it. Did you ever see the video on the Pentagon? Now that ones opens up alot of questions? I don't know, but what I do know is that we were not told everything, and I think it's also suspicious that the Bin Laden family was flown out of the country while all planes were grounded.....

Talk of the Nation broadcast remembering Mr. Safire, featuring Daniel Schorr and a Fresh Air archived segment.

Another remembrance by Schorr on Yom Kippur.


It's sad that we've reached a point where 'government service' is a dirty word... If we're the greatest country on earth, maybe we can have the greatest government.
