Tuesday, September 11, 1973


The Math Skeptic would like to congratulate the CIA on yet another successful South American coup d'etat!

Finally, the long-suffering people of Chile can get out from under the democratically-elected thumb of the despotic President Allende, and will finally live in peace and freedom under General Pinochet. This is a victory not just for the Chilean people, but for all the freedom-loving people of the world!

I don't normally do this, since I'm very opposed to celebrating numbers in any form, but there's just something about today's date that seems special. Nine-Eleven. 9/11. 9-1-1. Isn't it beautiful?

September 11 - a date that will be forever synonymous with freedom!
