9/11 remembrances

Sept. 11 is traditionally a day for politicians to reflect on their thoughts and remembrances of that day in 2001.

Today was no different. Inside the blog are some comments from local office holders about the day. You can read them by clicking here.

Ron Paul talks to press after rally

About 1,000 people turned out to hear Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on Friday at the Spokane Convention Center. He hit on many of the same things he did two weeks ago at a rally in the same location. But this time he also talked about revelations this week that two former United States senators believe that Saudi Arabia may have had involvement in the 9/11 attacks. He talked about that again in a press conference after his speech. He also talked about his campaign strategy and Super Tuesday. You can hear most of the press conference in the link above.

Spokane’s answer to burning Korans

If you’re getting tired about the amount of coverage some Florida preacher with a congregation smaller than a high school football team can get by saying he’ll burn some Korans, join the club.

So without mentioning the questionably reverend by name, we’ll mention that the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane has a counter demonstration scheduled for Saturday in downtown at the Main Street Fair, on Main between Division and Brown.

From 4:15 to 4:30 p.m., and again from 5:15 to 5:30 p.m., they plan to offer “two short programs of readings and prayers from faiths and secular traditions from around the world calling for inclusion, respect and peace… Community members will deliver readings from Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Humanist and other traditions and will read the First Amendment of the Constitution. ”

Proof that wise people do not fight fire with fire. They fight fire with water.
