There are some ledes that just lead you right through the glass and make you realize you're in an alternate universe:

ATC Heroes of 9/11
USA Today, of all media outlets, has a minute-by-minute account of the air-traffic controllers' decisions on September 11th - decisions which may have prevented more attacks.
The only thing I'm wondering is, why are we only hearing about this now, after nearly a year of the "Mineta made the decision" urban legend?
