On the morning of September 11, 2001, MacFarlane was scheduled to return to Los Angeles on American Airlines Flight 11 from Boston. Suffering from a hangover from the previous night’s celebrations,[125] and with an incorrect departure time (8:15 a.m. instead of 7:45 a.m.) from his travel agent,[126] he arrived at Logan International Airport about ten minutes too late to board the flight as the gates had been closed.[126] Fifteen minutes after departure, American Airlines Flight 11 was hijacked,[127] and at 8:46 a.m. it was flown into the North Tower of the World Trade Center, obliterating the airplane, and killing everyone on board.[128]

In an interview with TVShowsOnDVD.com, MacFarlane said the following about his close call:

“The only reason it hasn’t really affected me as it maybe could have is I didn’t really know that I was in any danger until after it was over, so I never had that panic moment. After the fact, it was sobering, but people have a lot of close calls; you’re crossing the street and you almost get hit by a car… this one just happened to be related to something massive. I really can’t let it affect me because I’m a comedy writer. I have to put that in the back of my head.[129]

Mike Piazza’s memorable HR, Sept. 21, 2001

(First MLB game played in NYC after 9/11)

“Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” … Administration officials dismissed the document’s significance, saying that, despite the jaw-dropping headline, it was only an assessment of Al Qaeda’s history, not a warning of the impending attack. While some critics considered that claim absurd, a close reading of the brief showed that the argument had some validity.

That is, unless it was read in conjunction with the daily briefs preceding Aug. 6, the ones the Bush administration would not release. While those documents are still not public, I have read excerpts from many of them, along with other recently declassified records, and come to an inescapable conclusion: the administration’s reaction to what Mr. Bush was told in the weeks before that infamous briefing reflected significantly more negligence than has been disclosed. In other words, the Aug. 6 document, for all of the controversy it provoked, is not nearly as shocking as the briefs that came before it.

The far left is people who believe 9/11 was an inside job. The far right is people who believe Obama’s a Muslim socialist. But I can’t name ANY elected democratic leaders who believe 9/11 was an inside job. But republican leaders who believe Obama’s a socialist? ALL of them!
