A new day of infamy

September 11, 2013
Editorial , Adirondack Daily Enterprise

(Editor's note: This editorial was originally published in the Enterprise on Sept. 11, 2001. Then-Features Editor Bruce Young wrote it on deadline that morning, with input from other staff members, as news of the attacks unfolded and other staff members scrambled to get it into the paper. We reprint the editorial here, as we do every Sept. 11, because it reminds us of how hard it was to make sense of those events in their first two hours, and because this essay succeeded in that context. We stand by its call for "calm heads," and we still "hope that we do not stoop to [the terrorists'] level." Note: The report of a car bomb at the State Department, cited here, later turned out to be false.)
