PRAGMATIC: Eulogy Overload VI

THINGS LEFT BEHIND: ARTIFACTS

My theater company discussed all the different ways we remember loss. "Eulogies" are typically the created responses; just as affecting are the memorials that are created by the loss.

In that vein, BoingBoing rounded up some of the physical artifacts from the destruction on 9/11.

THINGS LEFT BEHIND: LEGAL COMMENTARY

The legacy of 9/11 continues in our legal system, as Guantanamo detainees continue to fight in the courts. One tid-bit:
An investigative journalism service, Pro Publica, has been closely following the Uthman case as it proceeded through lower courts, and has concluded that it was a seriously troubled case because, it found, the main evidence that Uthman was an al Qaeda fighter or at least sympathizer came from two Guantanamo detainees, one of whom committed suicide and the other had become “psychotic” and other evidence was at least problematic.
