Remembering Sept. 11, 2001
How the story began to unfold
Editor’s note: This is a look back
at 9/11. This is an original story
published by the Associated Press
at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept.
11, 2001.
By Jerry Schwartz
AP National Writer
NEW YORK (AP) — In a horrific sequence of destruction, terrorists crashed two planes into the
World Trade Center and knocked
down one of the 110-story towers
Tuesday morning. Explosions also
rocked the Pentagon and the State
Department and spread fear across
the nation.
A witness said he saw bodies
falling from the twin towers and
people jumping out.
President Bush ordered a fullscale investigation to “hunt down
the folks who committed this act.’’
One of the planes that crashed
into the Trade Center was American Airlines Flight 11, hijacked
after takeoff from Boston en route
to Los Angeles, American Airlines
said.
The planes blasted fiery, gaping
holes in the upper floors of the twin
towers. The southern tower collapsed with a roar about an hour
later.
“This is perhaps the most audacious terrorist attack that’s ever
taken place in the world,’’ said
Chris Yates, an aviation expert at
Jane’s Transport in London. “It
(See STORY, page 2)
Local residents recall fateful day
“I was at the Wellington, Kansas, Triumph Air
Group. I was at my desk
and a coworker had sent
me an email that showed
the airplane going into the
building. All I said was,
‘what is this?’ I called my
coworker Laurie over. It
got worse and we all started to cry.”
“I worked at UAFS
(University of Arkansas
Fort Smith) then and was
on my way to work when
I found out. They had
TVs in the cafeteria and I
walked in just in time to
see the second plane hit.
It was surreal. I think of
it like Pearl Harbor; it’s
a day that will live in infamy.”

Panama launches cleanup campaign
By Kim Ross
PDN Editor
The town of Panama is
enforcing its warning that
property owners must keep
their land clean.
On Wednesday, Panama
employees and Mayor
Mickey Hale began work at
an unkept property located
on Missouri Street. After
sending notice to the property owner, and failure of
the owner to mow the grass
which had exceeded a foot
in height, the city acted.
According to Panama
Police Sgt. Andy Bevil
written notices are being
issued warning the property
owners they have 10 or 15
days to complete the townmandated cleanup. Failure
to do so will result in town
employees providing the
services at the cost of a lien
against the property.
The property on Missouri is the first of the
enforced cleanups and will
be the first to have a lien
filed against the property to
recoup the money it cost
the town.
“I want people to know
the town is serious about
cleaning this town up,” said
Hale. “If the property owners don’t want to clean it
up, we will clean it for
them and put a lien on their
property.”
Bevil said unmowed
lawns aren’t the only issue
being addressed. Buildings
that are or should be condemned and have yet to be
demolished also will be targeted. Those are just two of
many reasons a property
owner may receive notice.
“Any property owner
that receives a notice of
violation should take the
situation serious,” said
Bevil. “Property owners
that begin the cleanup process need to notify the town
so I can conduct another
inspection.”
Bevil said it is the property owner’s responsibility to maintain the property

A Spiro man faces several charges after allegedly
driving his motorcycle
while under the influence
of hydrocodone and alcohol.
Douglas Victor Mathis,
55, of Spiro, has been
charged with driving a
motor vehicle under the
influence of alcohol and
drugs, second offense, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, driving
with a suspended license,
attempting to elude a police
officer and speeding in
excess of lawful maximum
limit.
According to the affidavit, Oklahoma Highway
Patrol Trooper Cody Jackson was driving west on
Oklahoma Highway 9 east
of Spiro on Aug. 1 when he

saw a motorcycle traveling 50 in a 45 and weaving in and
out of traffic.
Jackson said he activated his emergency lights and the
motorcycle continued. Jackson said that he followed the
motorcycle north on North Beech Avenue, where the
motorcycle slowed before accelerating rapidly. Jackson
then activated his siren and informed the Mcalester OHP
dispatch that he was in pursuit.
According to court records, the motorcycle came to a
stop at Lakeview and Chloe Lane.
Jackson performed a weapon check and field sobriety
tests on Mathis.
Jackson said Mathis’ pupils were constricted and he
questioned him about illegal or prescription drug use, to
which Mathis allegedly admitted to using hydrocodone
earlier in the day, according to court records.

sive.
The potential for multiple liens
against the property that must be paid
prior to selling isn’t the only repercussion property owners face. Failure
to comply could also result in being
issued a ticket for violating city ordinances, said Bevil.
Additional cleaning projects
already are arranged, according to
Hale, one a block away from the
property cleaned on Wednesday.
COMMENTS
“I happened to be at the
library when a customer
told us. We went to the auditorium and were watching
it on TV when the second
plane went into the building. I was appalled and unbelieving when it happened.
Our hearts went out to all
the people out there and I
was proud of the people
that went to help. We were
watching in horror the rest
of the day. I hope it never
happens again.”

Laden.’’
All planes were grounded across the
country by the Federal Aviation Administration. All bridges and tunnels into
Manhattan were closed down.
The twin disaster at the World Trade
Center happened shortly before 9 a.m.
and then right around 9 a.m.
Heavy black smoke billowed into the
sky above the gaping holes in the side of
the twin towers, one of New York City’s
most famous landmarks, and debris
rained down upon the street, one of the
city’s busiest work areas. When the second plane hit, a fireball of flame and
smoke erupted, leaving a huge hole in
the glass and steel tower.
John Axisa, who was getting off a
PATH train to the World Trade Center,
said he saw “bodies falling out’’ of the
building. He said he ran outside, and
watched people jump out of the first
building, and then there was a second
explosion, and he felt heat on the back of
neck.
WCBS-TV, citing an FBI agent, said
five or six people jumped out of the windows. People screamed every time
another person leaped.
David Reck was handing out literature for a candidate for public advocate a
few blocks away when he saw a jet come
in “very low, and then it made a slight
twist and dove into the building.’’
People ran down the stairs in panic
and fled the building.
Thousands of pieces of what appeared
to be office paper came drifting over
Brooklyn, about three miles away.

for a new home of the Spears School of Business.
Construction of the $63 million building is slated to
begin in early 2015 and completed in 2017. The new
building will replace the current Business Building,
which has been in use since 1966.
Architectural renderings of the building are impressive.
Designers are creating spaces that will allow students
and faculty to interact more often and effectively.
Classrooms will be designed for flexibility and interactivity in spaces that allow for collaboration in small
groups.
School officials say the new building will create a unified space for faculty and students, who now use four
buildings across campus.
“This new building is a major step in the process of
transforming our campus,” OSU President Burns Hargis
said. “As a Spears School graduate myself, I look forward
to seeing all that will be accomplished because of it. And
this would not be possible without the many donors who
recognized the need for this facility and stepped up to
provide the necessary funding.”
More than 200 individuals, corporations and foundations helped finance the project. Fundraising continues
with an ultimate goal of $70 million.
The university is in the midst of a building boom on
campus. Infrastructure improvements, refurbishing existing buildings, repurposing others, and new construction
in the last several years has transformed the campus.
The addition of the new business building appears to
be following suit.

Our primary focus in December of 1999 was Y2K.
Would the computer systems handle the millennial change?
Might we suffer from serious computer snafus? In the
midst of the Y2K hype, we knew, though sometimes forgot, that the year 2000 was, in actuality, the last year of the
20th century and the second millennium, rather than the
first year of the new millennium.
It was a year later that we officially welcomed the new
millennial calendar, yet history tends to classify eras by
defining events rather than by the actual numbers. As a
result, one of my first thoughts on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001,
was that the new century had now historically begun. The
terrorism in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania, and the
ongoing threats would define a new era. We had gone from
the Cold War, through the demise of the USSR. We were
now living in the “Era of Terror,” a time period that could
easily dwarf the Cold War.
Although the Bush administration coined the term “War
on Terror,” and certainly the rest of his administration
focused on related issues, few of us want to envision the
21st century as the “Era of Terror.” May we be so bold as
to define our times in a more positive way, focusing on the
strength of our culture, rather than the threat of violent
destruction?
The heroes over rural Pennsylvania on Flight 93 proclaimed among themselves and to the world, through the
telephone call by Todd Beamer, “Let’s Roll.” With their
courage they preserved significant life and capital in
Washington. Their heroism was memorialized in at least
seven songs released in the following three years, as well
as Lisa Beamer’s 2003 book, “Let’s Roll: Ordinary People,
Extraordinary Courage.”
On a much smaller scale, this spring we observed the
same courage at Seattle Pacific University, a college associated with the Free Methodist Church. College student
and security worker, Jon Meis, took decisive action to limit
injury on his campus, when he pepper sprayed and tackled
the assailant. This, again, represents the best of the human
experience.
In our era of social media, we have new abilities to communicate quickly and rapidly at the grassroots level, about
unfolding situations, enabling the citizenry to limit the
damage by deranged and self-seeking members of our
Guest Column
Gary Welton
race. The benefits of social media were recently demonstrated in my home town, Grove City, Pa., when an adult
male grabbed a child in the local Walmart. The state police
released surveillance images to the media shortly after the
incident, and the images were quickly ubiquitous on social
media. Within minutes, the police received tips that led to
a timely arrest and restored calm to the local community.
On April 19, 2013, the FBI attempted to lockdown a
20-block area of Watertown, Mass., following the Boston
Marathon bombings. In the end, however, it was not the
FBI who discovered the whereabouts of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Rather, after the “shelter-in-place” advisory was lifted, a
resident discovered clues on his own property. The accused
terrorist was discovered through grassroots intelligence,
not through the official governmental search.
These events demonstrate the strength of an informed,
caring, courageous and involved community. Yes, there are
many risks in our lives and communities, some risks that
we never imagined in the previous century. Nevertheless,
though we cannot control the events of history and the
decisions of terrorists, neither are we entirely powerless.
There is strength at the grassroots level; there is strength in
numbers, as long as we are united, using all tools at our
disposal, to unite as a community, committed to protect our
citizen freedoms.
On 9/11, the distinction between civilian and soldier
changed. Some of us will be called to be civilian guards,
protecting our society. Let’s choose to define the new century as the “Era of Unity and Community” rather than the
“Era of Terror.” Let’s commit and promise to protect.

After years of bashing filibuster,
will Democrats embrace it?
During Harry Reid’s tenure as
majority leader, there has been no
dirtier word in the Senate than “filibuster.” On perhaps a million occasions, Reid and his Democratic colleagues have accused Republicans of
using the 60-vote requirement to
obstruct the Senate and prevent lawmakers from doing the country’s
business.
In November 2013, in a virtual
frenzy of anti-filibuster agitation,
Reid and most of the Senate’s
Democrats exercised the so-called
“nuclear option,” an unprecedented
procedural maneuver that allowed a
bare majority of Democratic senators
to kill the filibuster as it was used
against the president’s judicial and
executive branch nominations. Reid
left in place the filibuster as applied
to legislation, but threatened to kill
that, too, if Republicans continued
their recalcitrant ways.
That was then. Now, there is a
very real possibility the GOP might
win control of the Senate in
November. For the first time in eight
years, Democrats would find themselves in the minority. And you’ll
never guess what some strategists
close to Reid are talking about: Yes,
Democrats are threatening to use the
Guest Column
once-hated filibuster to stop
Republican initiatives.
Jim Manley, a Byron York
former longtime
aide to Reid who
now works for the lobbying and
communications powerhouse QGA
Public Affairs, wrote a brief piece in
The Wall Street Journal recently
commenting on reports that
Republicans are crafting a conservative agenda to enact should they win
the Senate. Republicans can plan all
they want, Manley suggested, but
they can forget about actually passing their bills.
“What everyone needs to realize is
that there is no way that Senate
Republicans are going to pick up
enough seats to overcome the 60-vote
filibuster threshold,” Manley wrote.
“Yes, if they play their cards right,
they will be able to pick up a handful
of Democratic votes on some issues,
but would still likely fall short of 60
votes.”
That’s as clear a threat as one
could find of Democratic filibusters
to come.
To outsiders, it might seem hypocritical that politicians would spend
years bitterly denouncing something,
then turn on a dime and adopt it when
conditions change. But that’s the
nature of the United States Senate.
So if Democrats become the
minority, look for them to rely on the
60-vote threshold to stop a lot of
Republican legislation. Look for
Republicans to criticize them for it.
And then look for both sides to bide
their time.
Some Republicans would like to
change the filibuster-for-nominations
rule back to what it was. But without
a Republican president, there is no
pressing need to do that; a majority
GOP could stop a Barack Obama
nominee by themselves, if they were
united. And as far as legislation is
concerned, there would be no reason
for Republicans to kill the filibuster
while a Democrat remains in the
White House. The president would
just veto GOP-passed measures anyway, and in most cases that would be
that.
But then there is
2016. If Republicans were to win the
White House, Senate and House, the
Senate’s GOP leaders would enjoy an
advantage they’ve never had: the
power to confirm the Republican
president’s nominees without worrying about Democratic opposition.
Conversely, Democrats have never
had to face a situation in which they
had no filibuster power to stop a
Republican president’s nominees.
They probably won’t enjoy it — but
they’ll have Sen. Reid to thank for
it.
Meanwhile, Senate Republicans
will face a serious temptation. The
new GOP president will have a legislative agenda. The filibuster would
be the Democrats’ only real power to
stop, slow or shape it. And Reid
already set the precedent for changing the Senate’s rules to do away
with filibusters on nominations.
Should Republicans do the same for
the legislative filibuster? The Senate
could face a turning point; it’s not
clear what the GOP would do.
Until then, if Republicans do take
the Senate this November, Democrats
will have to decide what to do when
they want to stop legislation favored
by the majority. Will they remember
all those terrible things they said
about the 60-vote requirement?
“That’s always been the unasked
question when Democrats were complaining about filibusters,” said a
high-ranking GOP aide. “Will they
just wave everything through that
Republicans want to pass?”
Not a chance in the world. “I bet if
you ask any one of them if they’ll
give up the right to debate, they’d all
say no,” the aide continued. “Makes
you wonder why anyone took them
seriously.”
Indeed.

Senior receiver/defensive back
says Pirates will bounce back
Game time vs. Van Buren, Ark., moved up to 7 p.m. Friday
By David Seeley
PDN Sports Editor
The Poteau Pirates, last season’s
Class 4A state runners-up, did not get
to start the 2014 season as they would
have liked, losing to the Alma [Ark.]
Airedales in last Thursday night’s Hooten’s Classic game at Fort Smith [Ark.]
Northside High School.
However, Poteau senior wide receiver/defensive back Dayton Martinez has
no doubt the Pirates will bounce back.
“It was very frustrating,” Martinez
said about the Alma loss. “I think we
can do a lot better than that. With all the
practice we’ve been doing, it’s helped. I
think we’ll come back.”’
In fact, Martinez believes he knows
the key thing to help that bounce back
Friday night in the Pirates’ road game
against the Van Buren [Ark.] Pointers,
which has now been moved up to a 7
p.m. kickoff.
“We just need to put everything together,” he said. “We played good overall [against Alma], but it we’ll put everything together we’ll be better.”
The Pirates beat the Pointers last season, but the Poteau senior knows Friday
night’s game will be a tough one.
“They seem to have a little bit more
talent, but so do we,” Martinez said.
“We’re just as good, if not better, than
we were last year.”
The Pirates are on a two-game losing
streak since falling to Anadarko in the
Class 4A state title game in December. A
victory will be greatly welcomed Friday
night.
“It will help a lot,” Martinez said. “It
will help our team get our confidence
back. I think if we can get through the
next couple of games, I think everything
will be all right.”
Although it’s a new season, Martinez
said that the success of the 2013 season has carried over into the 2014 campaign.
“There’s tons of players who are back
this year who will help our team,” he
said. “We have a lot of new players, too,
who will help us.”
Martinez hopes there will be more
football ahead for him after his senior
season ends.
“I’m starting to realize it a little bit,”
he said about his senior season going by
with each passing game. “I’ll miss it. It’s
my senior year. Hopefully, I can walk on
somewhere and play college ball — if I
work hard enough.”
Meanwhile, he will just enjoy the ride
while it lasts.
“It’s been really fun,” Martinez said.
“I love it.”

In Wednesday’s edition, a fourth-grade
Bandit League player was misidentified.
His name was Eric Tucker, who had a
tackle for the team. The Poteau Daily
News regrets the error.
Pocola Indians face Poteau JV tonight
By David Seleey
PDN Sports Editor
The Pocola Indians
football team will look to
rebound from it’s seasonopening loss Friday night
against Sallisaw-Central as
the Indians will meet the
Poteau Pirates junior varsity at 7 tonight at Costner
Stadium.
Pocola coach Rick Lang
said there were a lot of factors that led to the Indians’
48-22 loss to the Tigers.
“First off, Central is a
good ball club, and they
beat us in all three phases of
the game,” he said. “It was
an eye-opener for our kids,
but we had a good practice
on Saturday and [Monday].
I’m glad they hit us in the
mouth.”
Lang said the Tigers
showed what the Indians
need to work on this week
for tonight’s game.
“They showed us our
weaknesses,” he said. “One
is we have to get in shape.
We have to have the best
11 players out there all the
time. We were dropping
like flies Friday night. We
have to play for four quarters. They ran the ball well
because they controlled
the line of scrimmage.
We weren’t able to run
when we wanted to. We’ve
moved some kids around
to do what we can to fix it.
Defensively, we did some
positive things. We flew
around to the ball, but we
still made some mistakes,
and we’re going to try to
improve those.”
However, the Indians
know that tonight’s matchup will still be a tough one,
since the Pirates are two
classifications higher than
Pocola.
“Poteau isn’t going to be
easy,” Lang said. “We’re
going to have to shore
things up and play. I expect
Poteau to give us everything
we want. I don’t expect the
game to be easy. It’s going
to be a good challenge for
us. I want to see how our
kids come out after getting
hit in the mouth. I want to
see us improve.”
The big thing to help
the Indians be successful
tonight is to not beat themselves.
“We’ve been our own
worst enemy,” Lang said.
“We have to get in shape.
We have to take that step.
We have to get in shape.
We have to do a better
job on the offensive line.
We’ve got to do those two
things.”

need to clean up. We played
sloppy at times. We stressed
the penalties that we got,
and our blocking assignments — just basic football
stuff. I knew it wasn't going
to be with it being our first
game.”
The Tigers also enter at
1-0 after routing Panama's
rival, Pocola, 48-22 Friday
night in their home opener.
“They're a good ball
club,” Ellis said. “They're
better than Gore. They're
well coached. They're a
smaller bunch but a quicker
bunch, and are in shape.
That's one of the things I'm
worried about, the in-shape
factor. Will we be able to
play with them for four
quarters.”
If the Razorbacks want
to go 2-0 in 2014, they have
to improve upon the basics
from their season-opening
win last week — and more.
“It's just going to come
down to those basics with
blocking and tackling,” Ellis said. “We're going to
have to tackle in space because they have shifty kids.
They like to throw the ball
a little bit. On the offensive
end, we're going to have to
sustain drives. We want to
be able to play at the pace
we want, not the pace they
want.”
The best news with last
week's season-opening win
is the Hogs are healthy,
which is especially pleasing
due to the low number of
players this season.
“Everybody's healthy,”
Ellis said. “We're still 23
strong.”
Hall wins Week 2's
Pigskin Picks Contest
Craig Hall won the Poteau Daily News' second
Pigskin Picks Contest of the
2014 season last week.
Callahan picked all 12
games correctly to win $25
for his victory, putting him
in line for the grand prize at
the end of this football season's contest, which will run
until Super Bowl XLIX.
All winners each week
can come by on Fridays after being notified to pick up
the prize money.
The ballot will be in the
Saturday edition each week
for the following week's
contest. This week's ballot was in Saturday's edition. To be eligible for this
week's contest, ballots must
be turned in by 5 p.m. today, since the Pocola Indians will play a road game
against the Poteau Pirates
junior varsity tonight at
Costner Stadium.
Each week's winner will
be mentioned on the following week's Pigskin Picks
Page.

THE VILLAGE IDIOT
A COUNTY FAIRY TALE
My 8- and 10-year-old nephews
visiting from the Big City had
never been to a county fair. Maybe
in their rich county in their rich
state, they didn't have them.
What would a county fair would
look like in their well-to-do suburban part of the country? All the
carnies probably wear khaki
slacks and have degrees in child
psychology, while ours all look
like they're sex offenders hiding
from their parole officers. You

HOROSCOPE
By
Eugenia
Last
Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014
Evaluate your past, present and
plans for the future. Once you
have considered everything, make
the necessary adjustments that
will help you accomplish your
goals. You are the only one who
can bring about these changes, so
take charge and make things happen.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- Don't lend or borrow anything
today. Go over your banking
records to make sure you haven't
overestimated your balance. You
should curb unnecessary expenditures in order to get back on
track.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
-- Make the most of your day,
regardless of what others say.
Take control and show everyone
what you are capable of doing.
Your intuition will lead you in the
right direction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- You will not get far by being a
spectator. Get involved in events
that will help shape your future
and change your life. Remember
to leave some time for romance.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
-- Expect the unexpected, and turn
a negative into a positive. Don't
stop or let anyone sidetrack you.
It's up to you to stay on track if
you plan to reach your goal.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- Don't let your emotions goad
you into making a costly mistake.
You know what has to be done in
order to get ahead. When something doesn't run smoothly, assess
matters and reset your course.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Don't let past mistakes hold you
back. Chalk them up to experience and get on with your life.
Incorporate entertainment into
your schedule to boost your spirits.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- Tie up loose ends. Finish halfcompleted projects so you can
begin
to
move
forward.
Procrastination is the enemy and
will stand in the way of your
future goals.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Your patience will be tested.
Stay calm and observe what's
going on around you. Getting
angry will do more harm than
good. If you must participate, be
the mediator, not the dictator.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- It won't do you any good to
force your ideas on others.
Surround yourself with friends
and allies, and avoid getting into
competitive situations that could
harm your relationships.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-- Love and romance are on the
rise. Your instincts will be strong,
and you will know just how to win
people over. Trust your intuition
and follow your aspirations.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- You will have a tendency to be
overly dramatic. If you practice
patience, the solution will come to
you, so don't waste your energy
with emotional displays or volatile disagreements.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-- Your high energy level has you
headed in the right direction. Don't
slow down or look back; you must
keep your goals in sight if you
wish to fulfill your dreams.

Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014
Today is the 254th day of
2014 and the 83rd day of summer.
TODAY'S HISTORY: In
1857, Mormon guerillas and
Paiute Indians massacred 120
pioneers in Mountain Meadows,
Utah.
In 1939, Canada made its first
declaration of war, joining the
Allies in opposition to Nazi
Germany.
In 2001, hijacked planes
crashed into New York City's
World Trade Center, the Pentagon
in Virginia and a Pennsylvania
field in terrorist attacks that
claimed nearly 3,000 lives.
In 2012, a heavily armed militia
attacked the U.S. embassy in
Benghazi, Libya, killing four
Americans.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAYS: O.
Henry (1862-1910), short-story
writer; D.H. Lawrence (18851930), author; Paul "Bear" Bryant
(1913-1983), football coach; Tom
Landry (1924-2000), football
coach; Brian De Palma (1940- ),
film director; Virginia Madsen
(1961- ), actress; Moby (1965- ),
singer-songwriter; Harry Connick
Jr. (1967- ), actor/singer-songwriter; Ludacris (1977- ), rapper/
actor; Ed Reed (1978- ), football
player; Jacoby Ellsbury (1983- ),
baseball player.
TODAY'S FACT: John Tyler
was the first vice president to
assume the presidency because
of a sitting president's death.
During the term he served, after
William Henry Harrison's monthlong presidency, Tyler was often
referred to slightingly as "His
Accidency"
or
"Acting
President."
TODAY'S SPORTS: In 1985,
Pete Rose broke Ty Cobb's record
with his 4,192nd career hit.
TODAY'S QUOTE: "It ain't
the roads we take; it's what's
inside of us that makes us turn out
the way we do." -- O. Henry, "The
Roads We Take"
TODAY'S NUMBER: 4,256 -total career hits for Pete Rose,
which remains the Major League
Baseball record.
TODAY'S MOON: Between
full moon (Sept. 8) and last quarter moon (Sept. 15).
don't have to go into a tent to see
the tattooed man; he's running the
Whack-a-Mole booth and seems
quite disappointed that the marks,
I mean the customers, don't get to
whack real moles. In the leafy
suburbs, fairgoers may actually
win some of the large stuffed animals at the ring-toss wagon. At a
real county fair, no one ever wins.
And the rides! The nephews had
never seen such rides. Apparently
Disney World and Six Flags don't
have rusty, old, shaky contraptions
that look as if the peeling paint is
the only thing holding them
together. They didn't seem to
notice any difference between
Disney's ultra-modern Space
Mountain and the aging, battered,
used-looking king of our midway,
the Scream-a-Thon. I looked
around to see if there was a sign on
it that said, "Guaranteed to make
you vomit or your money back!"
No doubt the county fair ride
inspector gave the Scream-a-Thon
a thorough going-over before it
was approved to be operated by
the finest temp worker minimum
wage could buy. It probably takes
years and years of training, as well
as passing a tough test, to earn a
license to run something like this.
Then I remembered that we voted
to cut things like ride inspectors in
last year's election to lower property taxes.
Well, if an 8-year-old can ride
it, how bad can it be? I'll get on
with him. What a baby ride, I
thought, not very fast but a little
bit jerky. By the time I realized it
had just been loading other suckers, it really started to spin. The
centrifugal force was trying to rip
the pacemaker right out of my
chest. As our cage violently spun
around, we went from queasy
weightlessness to queasy multi-G
forces in milliseconds. My lunch
was screaming, "What's the matter
with you? What were you thinking?!" A week later and I'm still
queasy, but the 8- and 10-year-old
by Jim Mullen
went on to do all the other the
rides. Twice.
Then they asked me, "What's
a Demolition Derby?"
"Oh, you don't want to see
that," I told them, steering them
away from the grandstand and
towards Fried Dough Alley. I
carefully explained to them how
noisy and smoky and crowded
and dangerous it is to watch
guys crash cars into each other
as fast and as hard as they could.
"Half the time the cars burst into
flames and the firemen run to
put them out," I said. The more
I told them how violent and lifethreatening it was, the more they
wanted to go. They insisted that
if they didn't see the Demolition
Derby they would surely curl up
and die, that their lives would
never be worth living, that they
would never live up to their
potential and would probably
end up going to a state school
instead of Harvard.
"But first," I said, "We have
to get something to eat. Your
parents will kill me if I don't
feed you." When the healthiest
thing at the fair is a deep-fatfried avocado, there's not much
point in trying to eat healthy.
The kids went for the donut sundae. Now I'm thinking, maybe
their parents will kill me because
I fed them. "Aren't you afraid
that will spoil your dessert?" I
asked, but no one answered.
The Demolition Derby was
everything I told them it would
be and worse. After half an hour
of solid engine noise and the
crunch of metal on metal, I was
longing for the peace and quiet
of the Scream-a-Thon.
On the drive home, through
their yawns, they both pledged
to become derby drivers instead
of hedge fund managers, no
matter what their parents
thought.
