first day of fall

Finally , a sunny day, warm air ,no wind and a little west swell at the pier. I didn`t go out because my board was at least 2' too short but it was pleasant to sit and watch before getting back to work.

BERNIE MADOFF vs.
SOCIAL SECURITY

Bernie- Takes money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them later.
Soc.S.- Takes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will be invested in a "Trust Fund" and made available later.

Instead of investing the money Madoff spends it on nice homes in theHamptons and yachts.
Instead of depositing money in a Trust Fund the politicians use it for general spending and vote buying.

When the time comes to pay the investors back Madoff simply uses some of the new funds from newer investors to pay back the older investors.
When benefits for older investors become due the politicians pay them with money taken from younger and newer wage earners to pay the geezers.

When Madoff's scheme is discovered all hell breaks loose. New investors won't give him any more cash.
When Social Security runs out of money they simply force the taxpayers to send them some more.

Bernie Madoff is in jail.
Politicians remain in Washington .

9.11.01 - United flt. 93

My life is pretty soft and not much is asked of me, my biggest decision most days is what to have for dinner. Today as I read again the actions of the passengers of Flt #93 9 years ago I cried. It amazes me and makes me proud of a group of strangers who found themselves in an unimaginable situation , coalesced into a team and fought back against their hijackers, who intended to fly their plane into the nation`s Capitol.I don`t know how I`d have reacted when faced with that kind of decision, but I thank God for the 45 passengers on Flt.#93 that day.

Mark Bingham, 31, of San Francisco owned a public relations firm, the Bingham Group. He called his mother, Alice Hoglan, 15 minutes before the plane crashed and told her that the plane had been taken over by three men who claimed to have a bomb. Hoglan said her son told her that some passengers planned to try to regain control of the plane. "He said, 'I love you very, very much, ' " Hoglan said.

Thomas E. Burnett Jr., 38, of San Ramon, California, was a senior vice president and chief operating officer of Thoratec Corp., a medical research and development company, and the father of three. He made four calls to his wife, Deena, from the plane. Deena Burnett said that her husband told her that one passenger had been stabbed and that "a group of us are going to do something." He also told her that the people on board knew about the attack on the World Trade Center, apparently through other phone calls.

Jeremy Glick, 31, from West Milford, New Jersey, called his wife, Liz, and in-laws in New York on a cell phone to tell them the plane had been hijacked, Joanne Makely, Glick's mother-in-law, told CNN. Glick said that one of the hijackers "had a red box he said was a bomb, and one had a knife of some nature," Makely said. Glick asked Makely if the reports about the attacks on the World Trade Center were true, and she told him they were. He left the phone for a while, returning to say, "The men voted to attack the terrorists," Makely said.

Todd Beamer, 32, was from Cranbury, New Jersey. "Let`s roll!"
