       October 23, 2007

    The guy behind Post Secret was in Madison the other day. During his talk, he held up a few postcards that he couldn't share in his book due to copyright concerns:

    He held up a postcard with an image of the Twin Towers. It read: "Everyone who knew me before 9/11 believes I'm dead."

    I've often speculated that at least five or six people used 9/11 to fake their own death. What do you think? Did anyone take advantage of the attack like that? And, is it weird that I even think about these things?

    I'm sure people did. It's like joining the foreign legion; only you don't have to leave the country or serve in the French military.

    Absolutely some did. No you're not crazy or even morbid for wondering. Women escaping abusive boyfriends. Men who want out. They saw a chance and took it. Of course, if they get caught, the hell that will befall them knows no bounds.

    you saw this a few weeks ago, didn't you, kris?

    A woman who has claimed to be one of 19 survivors of the 9/11 World Trade Center tragedy might actually be a fraud, the New York Times has reported.

    Tania Head has been removed from the position of president of the World Trade Center Survivors' Network and as a tour guide at ground zero. Questions were raised about her account of how she survived, but lost a loved one in the World Trade Center attack.

    Saying that the "the pieces just don't fit," the Times reported that Thursday that none of Head's claims had been verified.

    it's like what you're talking about, only opposite. ;-)

    I saw that. She's must have some kind of mental problem.
