The Heroes of Flight 93 Deserve Better

“Let’s Roll” was their battle cry as ordinary American citizens crashed a plane causing their own deaths.

They will always be heroes to me, part of my people, the ones who carry this country on their backs.

So the U.S. U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hall of Flags finally releases the design for the heroes of Flight 93, which crashed into a reclaimed strip mine near Shanksville, Pa.

They used a crescent.

How dumb is this?

Of all the geometric symbols in the universe, they had to use a crescent? Recall that the people who caused the deaths of these heroes hails from countries which use the crescent as a national symbol.

Would they have used a swastika to memorialize the soldiers of WWII? A rising sun in memory of those who died in Pearl Harbor.

No, it’s not a coincidence I don’t believe that for a minute.

This is some feel-good, do-good, love-your-enemy-they-are-oppressed liberal mish-mash.

Though the designers will tell you it was not intentional.

So okay. Go back and change it.

Check the picture below and envision the red crescent, symbol of the sons of camels across the planet.

As described by the designers below:
"Crescent of Embrace" will feature a Tower of Voices, containing 40 wind chimes -- one for each passenger and crew member who died -- and two stands of red maple trees that will line a walkway caressing the natural bowl shape of the land.

ANSWER Communists Going to End Iraqi War

FreeRepublic founder Jim Robinson posted this message on his site:
The left is massing for their huge anti-war protest in Washington, DC, on September the 24th. This isn't about Cindy Sheehan. Led by the communist supported International A.N.S.W.E.R. group, the left believes this one massive protest will deliver a Vietnam style knockout blow to our president and the war effort.

This is their big "Vietnam war" protest of the current generation. Do not allow this group of America-hating hippies and misfits win the day for the terrorists. Do not allow them to destroy public support for the war as they did in the 60's. Do not allow them to demoralize our troops with their lies and anti-America communist propaganda!!

Seems the moonbats think they’re going to change the direction of our country. Communist moonbats at that.

Another Reader Successfully Raises a Cardinal!
Though the reader gives me credit for it, I must blush.

I did direct her to the web site of a Hawaiian reader who had raised a baby cardinal.

What a beauty….pic below.

Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance?"

One could easily take what I know about dancing and place it firmly up the behind of a flea. It would then still rattle around like a Bee bee in a box car.

For instance, the dances featured on Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance?" are foreign to me.

On the episode aired on Wednesday 9/14/05, dances such as "lyrical", "fox trot". "disco" and some really weird Spanish thing called the "Pase Doble" were featured.

I do know pretty syncopation, fluidity of movement and just plain pleasant watching when I see it. Indeed myself often dances handily with the dogs of the household and has, I say proudly, taught such canines to also dance. I've got a dachshund that can do a spectacular Cha Cha. Although his fat sausage body looks nothing like the Cha-cha done by Artem and Ashle in this past episode.

Let's take a look at the final eight contestants in this contest that Fox would love to be the next "American Idol".

The ages of the final eight range from 20 to 27. Mine own birth city of Baltimore is represented by finalist Jamile.

Three contestants hail from California. The rest are closer to the east coast. One finalist hails from Russia.

Up for elimination per the judges in this past week's episode are Jamile, Artem, Melissa and Ashle.

I loved Blake and Melody's disco dance. The judges too liked this couple's performance of both the disco and lyrical dances. They were both called "hot and sexy" by one judge. If I were a betting woman I'd go with this couple with what little I know now.

Kamilah and Nick did a mambo deemed by the judges as "not even close". Their contemporary dance featured intriguing black and white costumes and had a very cool ending that hey, I liked. Per the judges, their contemporary rendition was perfect.

Artem and Ashle did a Foxtrot and a Cha Cha. Both dances that I would imagine not in Artem's area of dance expertise. The judges gave thumbs down on Artem's fox trot as well as the Cha Cha. Ashle is a beautiful woman and look gorgeous during that Cha Cha.

Melissa and Jamile did a hop-hop and that Spanish thing. The judges pronounced Jamile as no matador. I noticed during the hop-hop Melissa's legs were not in sync with her partner's. Both received praise for their hip-hop performance.

For now, remembering that flea and the behind, I'd choose Blake and Melody. By me Ashle's got a great chance as well.

Next week two more contestants will be eliminated.

I hope Ashle's not one of them.
