Our very limited attention span...

May very well be the death of us...

On Feb. 26, 1993, a bomb exploded in the garage of New York's World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 others.
Unfortunately, shortly after that grim event... we forgot all about these "busy little beavers"... with the result that eight years later, some 3,000 innocent victims paid a devastating price.

And so, on this grim anniversary, it might be a useful exercise to turn off "Entertainment Tonight" and be a little more aware of current events...
Mr Ahmadinejad has said no amount of UN sanctions will deter Tehran from its nuclear path.

"If they want to continue with that path of sanctions, we will not be harmed. They can issue resolutions for 100 years," he said in a televised interview on Saturday.
Iranian nukes, huh? Nah, that ain't got nuthin' to do with us.

I bet that's what they were thinking 15 years ago today... and on September 11, 2001.

Yah, and todays Canadian newspapers are all carrying a call from opposition leaders for the Prime Minister to intervene and get a Kadhr released. That worked out pretty good when Chretien did it.
