    Well, was it Ebola, ISIS, FBI, or the CIA, or the beginning of the Rapture. You know mechanical failure cannot have caused this, don't you? Thermite is everywhere!

    C'mon. It was unmanned.

    Thank you.

    I bet that for a second there were people thinking it looked cool. Just before they started going through there heads making sure it wasn't something they did wrong.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
