  1. Mark Bingham's name will live forever as a hero....

    Bin Laden's name will be among the horror stories of the ignorant and the fanatics.

  3. I will always allow Alice whatever latitude she feels around this because I'll never truly know the emotion...

    So with respect I say, I felt as though it was a stumble to say, "liberal groups' were complicating the legal process.

    Our process is complicated, frustratingly so as we all know, but it is our process & is intended to be slow so as to protect everyone & secure its position of authority & integrity.

    To title that aspect "liberal" is simply incorrect.

  4. Bittersweet is the word. I am sure we all have all kinds of feelings and emotions when thinking this.
    My heart also goes with Alice. Mark with other passengers are heroes.

  5. "Details" are what any trial is about. She should take that statement back and keep gODD out of it. That is entering the realm of extremism that originally started this hate.

  6. I wonder if the victims who are politicizing this aren't sort of saying in an indirect way that this may be nice but it doesn't bring their loved one back

  7. Thanks for sharing this, Andy. I've met Alice at three Bingham Cups and I think she's a great lady.

  8. I don't think it required a trial to show BL guilty.

  9. President Obama killed Osama and the racist old lady can't take it.

  10. The lady is solid.

  11. I've had great loss in my life and not a single day goes by when I don't remember them. Certain times of year like beautiful summer days or holidays can be particularly melancoly. I'm sure the same is true for Alice Hoagland and others who lost loved ones @ 9/11 or any other time. But losing a child, even an adult child, under such conditions, is so painful.

  12. Wow. I lost respect for her today.

  13. Wow. I gained respect for her today.

    Posted by: ratbastard | May 2, 2011 10:08:16 PM

  14. Wow. I've always had respect for her and I still do.
