Newsletter – 12 September 2019
September 12, 2019 Newsletter
It may be hard for many of us to believe, but yesterday marked the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on New York and the Pentagon, an event that would change the world. It's a cliche to say that everybody remembers where they were but we think it's definitely the case here. As always, the tales of heroism deserve an airing – so many men and women went above and beyond the call of duty on that extraordinary day and we send our gratitude and respect to every one. Yesterday also saw Twitter go wild for this thread of some forgotten heroes – the search and rescue dogs who worked on the day and during the terrible aftermath and their handlers.
On the other side of the world, Iran's sabre rattling continues to be a cause for concern – what do you think will happen next?

Joke: Looking for the Lieutenant
A major arrives at a remote post. "Where's your lieutenant?" he asks a private.
"Sir, there isn't a lieutenant assigned to this post."
"I was told there was."
"No, sir, no lieutenant here."
"I'm pretty sure there is."
The private thinks about it for a moment. "Well, Major, if I may ask you a question, imagine you took the word 'rifle' and removed the letter 'f', what would remain?"
"Well, 'rile' I suppose."
"That's what I thought. And sir, if you took the word 'draft' and removed the letter 'f', what would remain?"
Amused, the major answers, "'Drat' I guess."
"And sir, if you took the word 'lieutenant' and removed the letter 'f', what would remain?"
The major says, "There is no 'f' in lieutenant."
"That's what I have been trying to tell you, sir. There is no effin' lieutenant."
