Who knew the World Trade Center was
gonna get bombed
Who told 4000 Israeli workers at the Twin Towers
home that day
Why did Sharon stay away?
…A month after Amiri Baraka
became the poet laureate of New Jersey, Gov. James E. McGreevey asked the writer
and political activist to resign yesterday because a poem he read at a recent
poetry festival implies that Israel knew about the Sept. 11 attack in
But Mr. Baraka said he would not resign, creating an
unusual political quandary. Aides to the governor said he did not have the power
to remove Mr. Baraka because Mr. McGreevey had not directly selected him. And a
member of the committee of poets and cultural officials who chose Mr. Baraka
said that group had no power to remove him either.
