Voters say no to new 9/11 investigation

I have to admit that I was pretty teary-eyed when I read this guys. But two to one is not bad, so chin up. At least the impeachment resolutions made it through. The message, however, is clear: We have to work harder to get our message out. And we can start by helping our own in the comments section of the current article:

Voters say no to new 9/11 investigation

Burlington voters Tuesday rejected a local group's call for a new investigation of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, by a nearly two-to-one ratio.

The vote was 3,150 to 1,817. The ballot question passed 39-17 in Lincoln, proponent Matthew Ennis said. The issue never generated much debate in Burlington.

"I'm very surprised," said Marc Estrin, spokesman for the Burlington group, which gained enough signatures to place the question on the ballot. "I was expecting the opposite direction."
