A new day of infamy

September 11, 2012
Editorial by the Adirondack Daily Enterprise: Publisher Catherine Moore, Managing Editor Peter Crowley

(Editor's note: This editorial was originally published in the Enterprise on Sept. 11, 2001 - a Tuesday, like today. 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 have done every Sept. 11 in recent years, 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 so well in that context. We stand by its call for "calm heads" and still "hope that we do not stoop to [the terrorists'] level." Note: The news of a car bomb at the State Department, cited here, later turned out to be a false report.)
