Post:

OK, so let's bring in back to physics. Why did the buildings collapse? The
top of Tower 2 started to lean, and I half expected the building to break
at that point, but the complete structure seemed to give way from the top
down. And I was even more surprised, when I got to work that morning, to
learn that Tower one, the first one hit also collapsed. I'm not much of an
ME. Anyone have ideas?

Peace Earl D.
