    I can't seem to track down the most recent death toll for the 9-11 attack. Does anyone know what it is now? I think it's around 4,800+ ???
    Thanks.:confused:

    death toll

    The highest number I ever heard was 6,500, the lowest was 3,500.

    There is no definitive, "official" number source, I think the most accurate guess was just under 4,000. I've seen several of the largest cities in the world, all the largest cities in the US, but I live in a county who's population is about 500,000, the nearest town is about 5,000, my boys go to school in a town of 478.

    To equal the death toll at the WTC, we would have to just remove several of these little towns around here, including the one I call home.

    Awesome.
