Barbara Olsen Dead On One Of The 4 Flights

Wed Sep 12, 2001 10:37 am

Famed CNN commentator was on the flight that crashed into the pentagon.

She phoned her husband Ted Olsen from the air telling him the they were being pushed to the back of the plane with the pilots, by men with knives and box cutters.

Before the phone went dead she said, "We're being hijacked, can you believe this?"

Ted Olsen was Bush's head lawyer in last years election battle, and is now the Solicitor General.

The producer of Frasier was also on the ame flight.

I knew there had to be some famous people involved in this whole thing.

I bet we're going to hear of more by the end of the week.

Did anyone see last night's Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher? Normally, he has 4 guests, but last night he only had three. One of the chairs was empty. He said that the empty chair was a tribute to her. She had been on AA 77 because she was flying out to appear on the show. Very sad.

David Angell -- one of the Executive Producers of Frasier was on a flight. He, along with Peter Casey and David Lee created Frasier (Hence KACL [Angell, Casey, Lee])
