The consequences of 9/11 keep on piling up. Submitted for your approval:

1.) 14 search-and-rescue dogs which served at Ground Zero have died. Eight of these deaths were from cancer. Others have died from strange fungal infections and hepatitis, amongst other causes. In total, 97 dogs were part of the search and recovery efforts after September 11th, and hopefully plans are in the works to monitor all of them until they die.

2.) In a report by the Office of the Inspector General of the EPA, the agency admits to misleading the NYC public on air quality after the 9/11 incident.

Taken together, these two bits of sobering news suggest that another wave of victims of the incident might be coming.
