Project 2996

Sadly, it’s that time of year again when we honor those who died on 9/11.  The 2996 Project is looking for some bloggers who will honor at least one of our lost.  Time is short, so please, if you want to put a little time into a project, please go here, send an email letting them know you want to participate.  You’ll be assigned a name, and it will be up to you as how much, or how little you’ll post about the person.

Hear, hear. I hope they get inundated with requests from folks on all points of the political spectrum.

If you knew someone you might be able to request their name. I honored Scott Hazelcorn in 2006 and asked for his name again this year.

If you would like to participate (you don’t have to be a blogger), go to this page and sign up.

You can also send an email to .

He explained the resons behind last year’s drop-off:

In 2007, Project 2996 was scaled back a bit. Health concerns and job market difficulties made it impossible to match the time I devoted to it in 2006.

Even still, several hundred people took the time to write tributes to the fallen, and pledges to remember them still.
