And speaking of September 11th...

Almost a year ago, terrorists hijacked 4 airliners, and flew them into things, which things then blew up or fell down, mostly spectacularly.

Since then, many arms of the federal government have done the terrorists' job for them, curtailing our Constitutional civil liberties -- in some cases severely (see my earlier link to a piece on the Gilmore v Ashcroft "right to travel" suit).

But on the day, there was a much larger "right to travel" issue -- the FAA issued a Ground And Freeze order to every aircraft within it's control, something that had never happened before.

The situation could be worse. On this day, the weather is pristine over most of the nation. And the early hour means most West Coast flights haven't even taken off.

Still, the skies have never been emptied before, and controllers, pilots and aviation officials have never faced such pressure. Rerouting so many flights seems a logistical nightmare with no margin for error.

And no one knows how many terrorists might still be in the air. During these hours, those who run the nation's aviation system will come to believe as many as 11 flights have been hijacked.

This is the story of the four most critical hours in aviation history an ordeal that began at 8:15 a.m., when the first indication that something was wrong came during a telephone call to American Airlines.

While I don't think it will ever be necessary again -- hijacking a commercial airliner in the United States is likely as moronic a proposition now as hijacking an El Al airliner has ever been -- how that order was issued makes for very interesting reading indeed.

Most interesting to me is that the order didn't come from the FAA Adinistrator, nor her boss, SecTrans, nor did it come from National Command Authority...

No, it was Ben Sliney, in his first day as National Operations Manager for the National Airspace System who had to pull the plug.

Helluva first day, Ben.

Sweet Molly

not Malone, probably, but you know how these things are.

NBC Dateline blew the lid off of Internet modeling, tonight.

I'm getting a bit tired of advocacy journalism. Certainly you can find a horror story if you look around (they didn't), and certainly you can find a cop to talk on camera about "how horrible those pedo's are" (they're not 'pedos' -- the girls are past puberty), and, in general, certainly you can rouse rabble if you're so inclined.

But, tell me: if Molly is so exploited and maligned and repressed, and her erstwhile webmaster is in jail (on completely unrelated charges -- well, unrelated to *this* website at least)...

then why is still online..

and for that matter (which question Dateline, to their credit *did* ask): why is the model in question doing the whole thing all over again?

"making money for college" is a pretty weak answer, if we're expected to believe that she made "$200,000 a year" off the original site, no?

I'm inclined, these days, not to believe recantations ("Oh, I was just pretending, to try and get it all over with." Shyeah, right.)

"I want them to come to my site and have an appreciation for the art...."


That sounds pretty familiar.

Where have we heard *those* words before?

[ update: I just went and actually *looked* at her new site. After doing that, I'm convinced that the entire event will turn out to have been contrived to publicize her new site -- it is even more commercial and exploitative looking than the old one (not to mention more poorly designed...) It would be *very* interesting to see the traffic maps for that site for this week... Someone's scammin' someone. Is Molly scammin' NBC? Or is NBC in on it; they *didn't* obscure the addresses... ]

Miss North Carolina, Rebekah Revels, has apparently resigned her crown because, says this AP piece via CNN, *she* thought that the Miss America Pageant would deny her entry on morals grounds:

Rebekah Revels told ABC's "Good Morning America" that the man had surprised her by taking two pictures while she was changing clothes. She has not disclosed the name of the ex-boyfriend, who she says physically and emotionally abused her.

[ ... ]

"The Miss America Pageant was not going to let me compete because they feel I breached the moral clause of their contract, after my ex-boyfriend e-mailed them and said, 'Ask her about two nude photos,' " Revels said.

A contract for pageant contestants prohibits them from "engaging in any activity that could reasonably be characterized as dishonest, immoral or indecent and from conducting themselves in any manner that is inconsistent with the standards and dignity of the Miss America Program," a statement from the Miss America Organization said.

It would be fun to criticise the MAP here, but I think the idiot was Miss N.C., myself.

But then, if she thinks that the image she should be setting for young women is "fold when someone pokes at you, even if they were wrong", then she *shouldn't* be Miss America.

This Just In...

A show about TV news gets it *right*.

Trust me on this...

From uplinks to downlinks, "Breaking News" talks the lingo glibly and seamlessly. If it gets a few details wrong, it frames the big picture just about perfectly, becoming TV's first entertainment series to examine the process of news gathering and tiptoe with journalists through the perilous minefields of corporate synergy.

And they do. I'm intimately familiar with all that gear, and how you use it, and they get it *right*. They almost never -- in the two episodes I've watched -- descend into tech for tech's sake, and when they do geek out, it becomes apparent that the writers either know the gig, or consulted with someone who did.

An *excellent* mid-season premiere, and let's remember: this is how Buffy got started.

Hoping for DVD's... and that, as intimated, Bravo picks the series up from the production company..

More: Clancy Brown, the actor who portrays news division president Peter Koczyk, has a page on his website with, well, breaking news on what's going on with the series. Enterprise watchers will recognise him as the devious native with whom Archer and Tucker played lacrosse this season...

Badge # 5

That's John Gilmore, who in addition to helping found Sun, also founded The EFF, and the Cypherpunks, and just generally gads about with all his money, keeping the government on the straight and narrow as best he can.

He tried, it seems, to gad to Washington DC on the Fourth of July (apt, huh?) to find out why it seemed like people weren't being allowed to fly on planes without "showing their papers".

They wouldn't let him on, because he refused to show his papers. Funny, that, no? has the story.

I've started keeping a clock on The Second American Revolution, like the Educational Foundation for Nuclear Science's "Doomsday Clock" -- long found on the cover of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. Theirs is as far forward as 7 minutes to midnight at the moment.

I'm currently projecting the Second American Revolution for about 2008. That was 2012, until this month. Corporate politicans are the number one danger, starting with Senator Fritz Hollings (D-Disney).

Say it with me now...

"A vote is a physical object."

"A vote is a physical object."

"A vote is a physical object."

It seems, you see, that Palm Beach County -- you remember them; they're the place where the Supervisor of Elections, Theresa Le Pore, can't read the Florida Statutes -- has done a big public demonstration of their new touch-screen voting machines.

I especially enjoyed *this* part of the story:

However, LePore, who called demonstration "a great success," said her staff got some practice responding to a minor tabulating glitch.

A cartridge was removed from one voting machine too quickly, before results could be written onto it. But results were stored electronically in the machine, and elections workers were able to insert another one to download the results a second time.

So... how are they gonna guarantee that those votes didn't get counted twice?

See above mantra.

You just can't kill for Jesus

That's Spider's take on the topic anyway, as another data point to ESR's, mentioned previously in this space.

I'm told 81% of Canadians believe in God, or at least claim to when asked by a pollster whose expression makes it clear the only other possible stance is satanism.

But my favorite observation is:

I'm calling for minimal standards of shamanic competence. Physicians must swear to "First, do no harm," before we let them use a scalpel on a dead frog; it's time we started requiring that much of our soul-doctors. "First, kill no unbelievers..." Any faith that won't go at least that far should forfeit tax exempt status.

One of those rants was when Netsol (now Verisign) took over registrations for .org.

They trashed it of course, largely by *recommending* that people "get all three!" (.com, .net, and .org) so the morons out there wouldn't get confused.

This was merely one of the items on which I commented back in 1997, when the Department of Commerce was trying to figure out what to *do* with this crazy internet thing, and I'm only happy that I wasn't the *only* person with a clue they ignored.

In any event, the Internet Software Consortium (the BIND people), in conjunction with the Internet Multicasting Service people, are about to bid to take over management of the .org registry.

They have the background, infrastructure, and the proper approach, attitude and goals to do it correctly.

But they're submitting the proposal to ICANN, which guarantees they won't get it. <sigh>

Go support them anyway.

Peter Jennings, since, y'know, he's not busy *enough*, is now doing a daily commentary email on what's going in the night's 'cast.

A side note on email: if you subscribe to many mailing lists, as I do, you might find it useful to know that many incoming mail systems these days (on the "real" internet, not AOL :-) support "the plus convention": if you tag the end of your email address with "+something", it will still be delivered to you -- which can make tracking who has your address and where they got it *much* easier, as well as filtering stuff you're not interested in.

' Well, um, I didn't really *mean*

TBS Chairman Jamie Kellner, the highest ranking executive in the Fortune 1000 with such a fey name, was quoted a couple of weeks or so ago as saying that television viewers who use devices like TiVO and Instant Replay to skip commercials are "breaking their contract" with free-television providers, and "stealing".

Now, quite apart from the fact that *he* isn't really involved with free broadcast television these days -- yes, WTBS-Atlanta does in fact still broadcast a local carrier, but whe's the last time *you* saw an Atlanta car dealer ad on there; they're a cable network these days -- he is of course, wrong, and there was the expected firestorm of controversy.

Now, there have been a *lot* of those lately -- the US is starting to sound a lot like a Tequiza commercial -- and in general, they're actually pretty good for us. Just like the Pledge fracas -- or Clinton's blowjob -- they bring up issues we need to talk about, in a fashion whereby we really can't avoid it.

But I'm beginning to wonder whether Murricans as a group are really *equipped* to deal with it. The intelligence gradient seems to be getting more and more pronounced... the smart people these days are smarter, and the stupid people... well, they're so well protected from their stupidity by technology and civilization that they don't get weeded out very fast.

Which end of the gene pool am *I* in?

Make your own choice.

Oh ghod; the

There's a new book out, published by a University press, no less -- to some controversy -- that makes, largely, the assertion I've been making for some time: it's not *sex* that's dangerous to young people, it's *American culture's reaction to 'young people and sex'* that's the dangerous part.

The book is titled "Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children From Sex", and The Village Voice has some (generally) nice things to say about it.

"People at 13 and 14 are generally not mature enough to carry out safe sex. And if a 10-year-old is engaging in what you or I might call real sex, that's a real problem."

Utterly reasonable stuff. But read the ongoing press coverage of Levine's new book, Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children From Sex, and the public intellectual somehow morphs into a crazed pedophile. The madness began before Levine's book was even published. Arguing for recognition of young people's sexual pleasure, Harmful to Minors was rejected by a string of publishers (one dubbed it "radioactive") before being picked up by the University of Minnesota Press. Various outraged Minnesotans then demanded that the academic publisher stop printing the book (it hasn't) and begin a review of its editorial policies (that's under way). The ultra-right Concerned Women for America decreed Harmful to Minors an "evil tome." And Dr. Laura, the fang-toothed radio conservative, went on air to accuse Levine of condoning child molestation.

Lots and lots and lots of anthropological evidence shows that sex, per se, doesn't warp the minds of children in the least. It's the demonization of sex that is what causes the problems.

But I'm sure I don't have to convince *my* audience, such as you are, of something this fundamentally obvious. It's like "Another Damn Dave Barry Book". If the title would offend you, then the *contents* of the book would give you a coronary occlusion.

'They'll love us when we win.'

Toby Ziegler's observation in tonight's re-run of The West Wing (*ghod*, I miss that show...) about Arab Street's reaction to *our* reaction to September 11th.

As it turns out, he's right, at least according to Eric Raymond, Linux hacker and all around opinionated guy (much like myself, though ESR's better at it).

In his 5-part series, which starts here, he asserts that Islam must be defeated before it will cease to be a threat to "the west". I can't vouch for his premises, but his logic seems sound.

The discussion on his comment forum is typical: polarized; the agreements sound cultured and intelligent, the disagreements sound like raves.
