Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Here's something I remembered when I spent that day combing through 9/11 Commission staff reports and timelines. Does anyone remember that show the Lone Gunmen? It was that short lived X-Files spinoff set in my old stomping grounds of Takoma Park, Maryland. It featured those three hacker geeks that Mulder and Scully relied on when they needed to get into some tightly locked DOD files and such.

Anyway, the pilot episode featured a plot to crash a Boeing 727 into the World Trade Center. In this case, it was a government plot where the plane was remotely taken over from the ground by computer. I watched a video clip of this scene, and the eery part is it aired on March 4, 2001.
