The anniversary of the greatest tragedy of modern times to the United States. The felling of the Twin Towers by Al caeda. Osama Bin Laden a rich terrorist assaulted the United States and it caused his death. Almost three thousand people died the day he ordered planes to fly into the World Trade Centers. That was the day his life got an expiration date. May we never forget the day too citizens died for a cause and the first responders that have died since.

Lily’s Lagniappe: The LSU Tigers will get Arden Key back for the Mississippi State game. I foresee he will get limited play.

Working on mini mysteries like the Encyclopedia Brown series. Reading Sobol books and getting a feel for how long a story is. The stories are addicting. You feel how could I miss that, but then again sometimes you say I know the answer. Hopefully I can write one that is somewhat successful.

Lily’s Lagniappe: LSU Tigers have a first home game this weekend. Big Hurricane Irma barreling toward Florida and the southeast United States. God please spare us.
