To The Editor: Every generation has had a world event that defines the age they live in, but most historians would agree that no man-made event in history has impacted a country as much as did 911, a day that will live in eternity. No country has been so shocked by the suddenness of the attack. Even the attack of Pearl Harbor did not have as much impact because there was already impending doom that there would be a war with Japan. On 911 we saw these events as they were happening. We were seeing it in real time.

Steve Bowe got things going for the Bombers as he led off the game with a single. He stole second base and advanced to third on a ground out. Bowe then scored on a fielder's choice when Shane Strain hit a shot to third base.
Thanks to the pathetic losers who had the guts to come down my driveway, steal 100 feet of garden hose, the spool it was on and the attachments. I don't know what their problem is. Their parents must be really proud. If anyone around town happens to see their neighbor has a garden hose with two purple attachments -- a flower nozzle and a straight nozzle with about eight different selections on it -- please call the police. It's really depressing. You can't keep anything in your yard anymore.

Political junkies were in their glory this past week as Minnesota became the center of presidential politics. The Twin Cities was visited by President Bush and six of the Democratic presidential candidates -- three in person and three via video conference. Average citizens, we suspect, focused their attention on the weather forecast in anticipation of summer weekend fun.
