Results revealed significant differences with respect to political alignment and race as to self-perceived awareness, but not correctness, with regard to those past events.To present his paper, Dr. Johnson flew into Logan International Airport, the same airport, coincidently, the terrorists departed from on Sept. 11, 2001.
