The 9/11-Free Universe

New York magazine this week runs a special section asking various writers and other luminaries what would have happened in the world since had 9/11 never happened.

Most of the answers are predictable answers based on what we know about the people already, but in the section is an amazing piece of writing from Andrew Sullivan, purporting to be an "alternate history blog" of the present day, had there been no attack. The gist: the threat from Islamic terrorism was not prevented, but merely postponed. I recommend everyone read this, if only for the fascinating political scenarios.
