On September 11, 2001, there must have been just a split second of time when the World Trade Center tower looked very much like this to an Al-Qaeda hijacker piloting a Boeing 767 jet.
With this glimpse of 2021, I have the heart tremor of a passenger on a hijacked plane flying into the new year. Can the pilot handle this thing?
But, wait, there is hope. The pilot is a puppet. He can only do what the Puppeteer allows. The Puppeteer will allow what the audience demands. As the debris falls, the puppet will be exposed. Truth…but where is Justice?
