35. Re: just please keep your perspective Sep 12, 2008, 00:00 Sixtoes
That's rubbish. It's not like like 2800 babies were killed. There were ~ half dozen kids killed, the rest were adults.

The nature of the loss due to car accidents is substantially more pronounced when the "nature" is determined by age.

So what nature are you using?

I think you may have misunderstood my point. Actually, I know you misunderstood my point because at no time did I mention the age of any of the victims. Please re-read my post if you are still confused.

Perhaps if I restate it this way... it was the MEANS of the loss, the manner in which the loss took place, i.e., the nature of the loss. Mr. Tact understood me (as indicated by his subsequent reply), so I'm not sure where you missed the boat.

The point I was trying to make - without putting too fine a point on it, lest I garner the attention of any trolls - was that it was how we lost those individuals on 9/11 that was so significant. A murderous crime on a scale previously unimaginable. A large number of lives snuffed out in such a short time. An attack on our soil, against private citizens just going to work or going about their daily lives. That, sir, is what I was talking about.
