LEONARD PITTS JR.: Little to show after 10 years
: "Two things strike me about the Million Man March. The first is a sense that we black men and our fellow countrymen seemed to be talking about two marches. We heard we were going to support the notorious Jew-baiter Louis Farrakhan and to attack America for its mistreatment of us. We said we were going to attack our mistreatment of our families and ourselves, and that many of us joined the march not because of Farrakhan, but in spite of him.
The second thing that strikes me is the optimism we felt. We stood, generation be-bop, generation do-wop and generation hip-hop, gathered to slap backs and shake hands and be shoulder to shoulder and man to man. We were the show, standing on what felt like the pivot point of change.
Yet here we are, still damned by numbers. Because change is not something you talk into existence. Change takes action."
WorldNetDaily: OU bomber tried to buy ammonium nitrate
: "The student who blew himself up outside a packed Oklahoma University football stadium Saturday night tried to buy large quantities of ammonium nitrate – a key ingredient in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing – the week before, according to a new report.
Also, Joel 'Joe' Henry Hinrichs III attended a Norman, Okla., mosque near his university-owned apartment – the same one attended by Zacharias Moussaoui, the only person charged in connection with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, according to a report by KWTV-News 9 in Oklahoma City."
