Good show. Now that the Boston Bombing spectacle is in full swing, the newest celeb/victims are coming out with their own books. Jeff Bauman's is the first. I can't wait for Danny the Carjack Victim's life story of a rags to riches immigrant who single handedly saved NYC from the Evil Tsarnaevs.

'I Promised I Wouldn't Hang Up'
Lisa Jefferson, the phone supervisor who took Todd Beamer's call on Flight 93, believes God called her for a purpose.

"After he said, 'Let's roll,' he left the phone, and I would assume that's at the point that they went to charge the cockpit. And I was still on the line and the plane took a dive, and by then, it just went silent. I held on until after the plane crashed--probably about 15 minutes longer and I never heard a crash--it just went silent because--I can't explain it. We didn't lose a connection because there's a different sound that you use. It's a squealing sound when you lose a connection. I never lost connection, but it just went silent."

This is documented evidence from the Moussaoui trial. These calls were not made from the plane.

Beamer's call lasted 3,925 seconds. This would mean it did not end until 10:49 a.m., about three-quarters of an hour after Flight 93 crashed.
The phone call by Jeremy Glick phone call started at 9:37:41. The line was left open for 7,565 seconds. So the call ends at 11:43:46.

Barbara Olson made one call that lasted "0" seconds to the Department of Justice.
