The sun rose this morning on a beautiful clear Tuesday on the Northeastern seaboard of the United States. It is that magical time of year as summer slowly gives up it's warm embrace and the mornings begin to have a slight bite to them. School kids race down the street, the year's new school clothes as yet unscuffed and untorn. Like any workday morning on the East Coast, commuters are rushing to catch their train, or perhaps driving through traffic on their way to the rat race. Baristas crank out tasty caffeinated treats for the harried workers as the Sun continues it's slow slide up the Eastern skyline. It's 7:59 AM eastern time, and American Airlines flight 11 has just departed Boston's Logan airport en route to Los Angeles.
