An Inclusive Litany

12/30/01

A tiny note that appeared at the bottom of the December 30 panel of "Beakman & Jax," a Sunday comics feature that introduces children to scientific concepts, in this case the reason why the World Trade Center towers collapsed the way they did:
P.S. from Jax: A lot of people say this fight is about good against evil. But both sides say that, so that can't be it. It's really about hate, and hatred is a powerful force that we have to be careful not to be a part of.

[Ed.: That first observation should be especially useful to children developing the ability to evaluate seemingly contradictory data.]
