United Flight 93, in voicemail form: The San Jose Mercury News got a hold of the voicemails to United Airlines Flight 93 passenger Mark Bingham. All sorts of people were trying to get a hold of Mark that day, who many now believe was one of the people who attempted to reclaim the plane from the hijackers. The voicemails start with “are you OK”-type messages, then notes of concern, then — after folks heard of his death — regret, remorse and appreciation for what he did. (A notable exception is his own mother, a former flight attendant with United, who tells him in her voicemail to fight back in an effort to save lives.) You’ll want to click this one and read closely. And, after you’re done, read the story that goes with it. We’d say this is the best newspaper page you’ll read about September 11, but that really gives all the other ones short shrift. There are many, many well-designed pages today. Charles Apple has a roundup.
EDIT: We’ve noticed a few cases where people have linked directly to the image on Twitter. We only posted it to our own host to save bandwidth for Charles Apple, and would ask that you not link directly to the image.
