  1. It’s hard to believe it was 20 years ago. I remember I was in a tire shop, buying a set of tires when I saw the newscast. Stunning.

  2. If it hadn’t been for this insane man, the left would have nothing to talk about. It was awful for sure and so was 9-11 which affected me personally.

    Far more damage has been caused by the left. Just the other day the Washington Post, my local newspaper, ran an article describing how over 1,000 bombs were set off by leftists in the U.S. in the early 1970s. Remember Bernadette Dorn and Bill Ayers?

  3. That horrible crime, in addition to killing all those innocents, created an undesirable distance between the public and their government. I worked in a federal building before and after the Oklahoma attack. Before it, people freely came and went to do business with us, our family members visited when necessary without restriction, and we could enter and leave the building with permission from our supervisors at any time without any questions being asked. After the attack everyone (including all employees) had to pass through a security check almost identical to what we now experience prior to boarding a commercial airplane before they could enter the building. After gaining entry, they were allowed only to visit a specific office in the building.

    The loss of free and informal contact between our citizens and their public servants, I believe, has been a more serious matter than it might seem. With it came an undesirable restriction on personal freedom for a large number of people. That is sad, but I don’t mean to imply it is as important as the passing of the Oklahoma attack victims. May they rest in peace.

  4. Thought of you all day yesterday. Stayed off line. Those kids and people just going to work one day. It may have been aimed at the federal government and not the American people, but these were those innocently living their lives. Stupid.
