More on the coincidence of anniversaries

Chris Bertram has some thoughts on the Sept 11-Chile discussion over at Crooked Timber – the comment box is worth a look too.

On the same articleNorman Geras takes a look at a topic that both myself and Chris didn’t address -the contrast drawn by between law and violence in Burbach’s article and his optimism in the anti-globalisation movement.

Inevitably there are a lot of American bloggers posting their personal memories/thoughts about September 11. Jeff Jarvis was in the midst of it all two years ago and returns to the site of the WTC to join today’s memorials and posts his description of the day’s events.
