    If we're entertaining fantasies, that's a day I'd like to return to--- and hit GWB upside the head with a certain memo until he actually read and understood the dang thing.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

      to play whack-a-mole most of that spring and summer, too, because he got six or seven of those PDBs (presidential daily briefing) prior to 911 that were about: Al Queda, attacks in planning stages, chatter about planes and buildings in the US and Al Queda covert operatives in or en route to the US, and bin Laden's determination to cause deep and abiding harm to the US.

      It wasn't just the one day. It was the entire year. And it wasn't just president Bush, it was his entire NatSec (national security) team, starting with his NSA (national security advisor, at that time) Condoleezza Rice and his VP, Richard 'Dick' Cheney.

      But in fantasyland? I'm right there with ya.
