It was a well organized reflection in time that briefly memorialized several of those lost in planes and the World Trade Center Twin Towers on 9-11 when John Freeman of Ripon staged what appeared to be a scripted but yet candid recollection at a morning service club meeting Friday.
Driving home Thursday evening in rural south Manteca, I was struck by the sight of black foliage atop a pair of tall dead trees in the middle of a field. I noticed the leaves moving, darting to and fro which I found puzzling. As it turned out, they were not leaves at all. They were little black birds looking for a crepuscular place to roost for the night. At least, that's what I thought they were doing.
