9/11 in black and white

08/11/11 04:27PM

With just one month to go before the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks, I got an interesting package in the mail. It's a new coloring book called "We Shall Never Forget 9/11", and it comes from the publisher who last year brought us the "Tea Party Coloring Book" that Rachel so enjoyed reading to you all. This one retells the story of 9/11, because who wouldn't want to color in a picture of the Twin Towers on fire, right? It also includes the successful mission to find and kill Osama bin Laden this spring. All for only $6.99! read more

In last night's follow-up segment to Tuesday's recall election in Wisconsin, Rachel explained why the results in those six districts suggest that a recall effort against Governor Scott Walker might be more feasible than Walker is comfortable with. Rachel's explanation was clear enough, with red circles and all of that, but sometimes I just need to sit and stare at a chart like this in order to get it.What we're looking at is a comparison of the election results in those six districts from when Scott Walker was running for governor in November, and Tuesday's recall elections. read more
