      Kas Graham of kindly forwarded a link to today's BBC
      news report of what appears to be an example of contagion (thank you Kas).

      I wonder if anyone seriously thinks that this would have happened had 9-11
      not occurred?

      Hi Paul,

      Like I did forwarded in an earlier post today, it all can come down to childs-
      play and I hasten to say, a very disturbing one.
      But, of course crashing planes into buildings is a reminder of what happened
      on the 11/ 09 and indeed the coastgard and the FBI responded accordingly.
      But, than again, an example of ( memetic) contaigon !? After all this time !?
      And than a boy of 15 !? Possible but not a very everyday example, though !

      Here in Belgium, a 17 year old burned down a church on New Years Day,
      not one of use saw a connection with the KKK ! It' s all about context I
      We must wait and see if the crash was an accident or a deliberate act.
      Maybe he was just playing in conformity with the chivalric honor and be-
      havior of being part of ' Top Gun ' !?
