Sept.11 revisited

It may be kinda sappy, but I was reading one of the numerous Sept. 11 anniversary-related stories that the AP is sending over the wires earlier tonight. In a story about the families of the victims of Flight 93, that crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside, and how they are dealing with the loss of their loved ones the following paragraph really touched me.

But families and friends have also honored their loved ones in smaller, more personal ways. A wife makes a dinner she has never made before and when her children turn up their noses, asking what it is, she explains: Their daddy loved Sloppy Joes.

*sigh*

I can't imagine what these families have to go through every day, but we need to remember that there's only one small difference between us: Sept. 11, 2001.

Actually, no serious person is sure what the conservative majority will do here. That's common in these politically charged cases. Meanwhile, literally nobody doubts what the *Democrat-appointed* justices will do. So who is "deeply partisan" again? https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/12/01/supreme-court-abortion-argument-roe-dead/

Doing some research and checked out @TheDispatchFC front page. It turns out the answer to every single one of these is "No." But one doesn't have that simple explanation on the main page. Why?
