Did you people know that she was a famous actress, years ago?

Christopher Bollyn's depiction of the events preceding 9-11 as preparing the public for the new "normal" is spot on. I remember there had been so much chatter about an airplane hitting the twin towers or at least something nasty happening to the towers, not only on television shows, but on local talk radio and tv shows. I remember the morning of 9-11 when I first heard about a so-called "plane" hitting the twin towers, the host of the sports talk show at first treated the story of a plane hitting one of the towers as almost "routine"

The most glaring examples of this were from that motion-picture THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, and from the series' premier, "The Lone Gunmen", which was a short-lived spin-off-of-"The-X-Files", showing pretty much what happened on/with 9/11, with the whole conspiracy being laid-out in THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, and the REMOTE-CONTROLLED JET-LINER ALMOST BEING FORCE-CRASHED INTO THE TWIN TOWER!!!

No bullshit--both of those really happened, and has bothered me, to-this-day.
