Pentagon 9/11 Memorial

On this September 11th, a memorial will open at the Pentagon honoring the people who lost their lives in the attack there 7 years ago. 184 memorials to be exact. A bench and a pool of light dedicated to each victim who was either inside the Pentagon or aboard American Airlines Flight 77 on one of the darkest days in the country’s history.

The Zogby Meter

Pollster John Zogby's analysis of data never reveals quite what you expect. In his new book, “The Way We’ll Be,” he interprets survey data in a way that reveals a new zeitgeist in American culture that is less focused on money and endless consumer desire. Instead, Zogby finds Americans increasingly aligned with principals of consensus, attitudes of responsible living and demanding authenticity from media outlets and political leaders. His research suggests a switch in Americans' understanding of their place in a more holistic, globalized community… Is this utopian or just Zogbian?
