Creepy and Cool

These are two sites I have found recently that can best be described as creepy and cool.

Here, a flash player video maps and summarizes the war with Al Qeada since its jihad declared in 1998. It has a world map, then with text, a time line and some photos, shows the major terrorist attacks linked to the jihad. Many took place before the war with Iraq.

A must see. Some background music if you are at work.

At this site, we see the last photos of Bill Biggart (right). Mr. Biggart was a professional photographer in New York on 9-11-2001. He took several really impressive photos of the events that morning. Then, when the second tower fell, he was crushed to death.

His equipment was salvaged, and his photos saved for us to see.

And see them you must. These are some incredible shots, made more incredible because we know how his story ended.

Wow, those photos are incredible. To me the contrast in the first photos with what beautiful day it was is striking. And then everything turns gray and ugly.

One look at those photos and the whole day rushes back in. My God what those people did to us. My God how brave we were.

Well I'm sorry, I can't look yet.

Not today. Maybe tomorrow. Some days it is all just too raw.
