Remember the war dead remains that went to the landfill?

Apparently, it has remains from 9/11 too!
"The practice at Dover of cremating partial remains and sending them to a landfill began shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, the report said, 'when several portions of remains from the Pentagon attack and the Shanksville, Pa., crash site could not be tested or identified.'"

The county Board of Supervisors does not, at this time, seem to be enthusiastic about erecting any sort of memorial or consecrating the site -- even through donations and at no cost to taxpayers.

The BoS may be reached here if you would like to offer an opinion.


  1. Gee, you'd think that Biden Guy would be willing to take the Lead on getting a Monument built, since he's from Delaware and all. Whatever happened to him,BTW?

  2. Sigh... Burying the 'dead' in more than one way...
