Drew - I'm getting ready to mirror it, but only a cable modem.

Farkers - if you can't get into that site, try mine. I'll post the link as soon as it is up and running.
2001-09-12 10:27:30 AM  
The links on that page don't work (or are already farked).
2001-09-12 10:34:56 AM  
A mirror to these pdf's would be sweet.
2001-09-12 10:36:37 AM

2001-09-12 10:42:09 AM  
Drew - prolly shoudl take this link down. none of the links on that site seem to be working. I tried about 20 of them total, on the various pages, and didn't get anything.
2001-09-12 10:58:04 AM  
No, please leave it up. Even if the big pages aren't working it's still useful to see the thumbnails.
2001-09-12 11:22:30 AM  
Indeed, leave the thumnails.
Previous post nearly simultaneous with your first, appreciate your efforts.

Appearantly the Toronto Star just says "Bastards"
2001-09-12 11:40:41 AM  
The page cannot be displayed
There are too many people accessing the Web site at this time.

2001-09-12 12:09:56 PM  
OK, give the Toronto Star the My-Feelings-Exactly Award
2001-09-12 12:40:18 PM  
Mirrored yet?
2001-09-12 01:11:27 PM  
Anybody have a pic of the Toronto Star front page?
2001-09-12 01:21:23 PM  
I read on The Register that the media were originally broadcasting images of the Pentagon attack, with the plane diving at an extreme angle, but they subsequently pulled this due to the pictures being too shocking or insensitive- anyone know of any sources for pictures or video clips?
2001-09-12 01:27:29 PM  
Actually it is the Toronto Sun that says BASTARDS for the headline.
2001-09-12 01:28:36 PM  
That's Toronto Sun, not the Star.

It's here:
2001-09-12 01:30:07 PM  
Muzzlerat: I'd find that surprising if it were true. I mean, they're showing the second plane hitting the building on and on and on...almost to the point of numbness.
2001-09-12 01:31:44 PM  
My attempt to post the front page

It went down, just as Drew spoke! Drewstradamus!

Just read this and thought I would pass it on.

This, from a Canadian newspaper, is worth sharing.
America: The Good Neighbor.
Widespread but only partial news coverage was given
recently to a remarkable editorial broadcast from
Toronto by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television
Commentator. What follows is the full text of his
trenchant remarks as printed in the Congressional
"This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the
Americans as the most generous and possibly the
least appreciated people on all the earth. Germany,
Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy
were lifted out of the debris of war by the
Americans who poured in billions of dollars and
forgave other billions in debts.

None of these countries is today paying even the
interest on its remaining debts to the United
States. When France was in danger of collapsing in
1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and
their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the
streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it.

When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the
United States that hurries in to help. This spring,
59 American communities were flattened by tornadoes.
Nobody helped. The Marshall Plan and the Truman
Policy pumped billions of dollars into discouraged
countries. Now newspapers in those countries are
writing about the decadent, warmongering Americans.

I'd like to see just one of those countries that is
gloating over the erosion of the United States
dollar build its own airplane. Does any other
country in the world have a plane to equal the
Boeing Jumbo Jet, the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the
Douglas DC10?

If so, why don't they fly them? Why do all the
International lines except Russia fly American
Planes? Why does no other land on earth even
consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You
talk about Japanese technocracy, and you get radios.
You talk about German technocracy, and you get
automobiles. You talk about American technocracy,
and you find men on the moon - not once, but several
times - and safely home again.

You talk about scandals, and the Americans put
theirs right in the store window for everybody to
look at. Even their draft-dodgers are not pursued
and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most
of them, unless they are breaking Canadian laws, are
getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to
spend here.

When the railways of France, Germany and India were
breaking down through age, it was the Americans who
rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the
New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an
old caboose. Both are still broke.

I can name you 5000 times when the Americans raced
to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name
me even one time when someone else raced to the
Americans in trouble? I don't think there was
outside help even during the San Francisco

Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one
Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get
kicked around. They will come out of this thing
with their flag high. And when they do, they are
entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are
gloating over their present troubles. I hope Canada
is not one of those."

Stand proud, America! Wear it proudly!!
This is one of the best editorials that I have ever
read regarding the United States. It is nice that
one man realizes it. I only wish that the rest of
the world would realize it. We are always blamed for
everything, and never even get a thank you for the
things we do.
2001-09-12 02:41:04 PM  
Methinks I have seen that one before, a while ago. Any idea when it first appeared?
2001-09-12 02:45:53 PM  
Here it is, found at
Origins: On June 5 1973, Canadian radio commentator Gordon Sinclair decided he'd had enough of the stream of criticism and negative press recently directed at the United States of America by foreign journalists (primarily over America's long military involvement in Vietnam, which had ended with the signing of the Paris Peace Accords six months earlier). When he arrived at radio station CFRB in Toronto that morning, he spent twenty minutes dashing off a two-page editorial defending the USA against its carping critics which he then delivered in a defiant, indignant tone during his "Let's Be Personal" spot at 11:45 AM that day
2001-09-12 03:21:18 PM  
Kind of amazing how things like that are still appropriate isn't it?
2001-09-12 03:43:30 PM  
Thanks for posting that, Watcher.
2001-09-12 03:57:59 PM  
The Toronto Star's headline is "A DAY OF TERROR". I think. I read it about 15 times today but I still don't remember it.
