On This Day... Part II

James Joyner dug through Glenn Reynolds' pre-Sep. 11 posts. He didn't find any non-terrorist news that stood out. He does note the explosion in Glenn's traffic.

I'm again going through the dusty TAM archives. This time I'm looking for big stories before the Sep. 11 attacks.

On 9.04.01, Compaq and Hewlett-Packard announced their merger.

Around the same time, Janet Reno decided to run for Florida governor.

This post reminded me of the biggest story that Sep. 11 tossed aside: Gary Condit and Chandra Levy.

I searched through a few weblogs on my blogroll and realized few had posts from that time. It makes me feel a little old (I was posting on Elian Gonzalez back in 2000.), and it illustrates how the weblog phenomenon has exploded.

If you remember some interesting non-terrorist news from around Sep. 11, let me know.
