In my efforts to get the American flag flying over this site, I apparently messed up the link to the search engine link on the message board main index page. Sorry if that has caused difficulty for anyone and it is now fixed.
I have received one email asking why I am not still "flying" the US flag at half-mast. According to the proclamation by President Bush, the US flag was supposed to be flown at half-mast (or staff) until sun-down on Sunday, September 16.

As a mark of respect for those killed by the heinous acts of violence perpetrated by
faceless cowards upon the people and the freedom of the United States on Tuesday,
September 11, 2001, I hereby order, by the authority vested in me as President of the
United States of America by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of
America, that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House
and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and
on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and
throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, Sunday,
September 16, 2001. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same
length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other
facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this eleventh day of September, in
the year of our Lord two thousand one, and of the Independence of the United States of
America the two hundred and twenty-sixth.
GEORGE W. BUSH
