To clarify: the title is excerpted from Act 1 of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost. The full quote goes:
"Light, seeking light, doth light of light beguile;
So ere you find where light in darkness lies,
Your light grows dark by losing of your eyes."
It's a warning against spending too much of your life in scholarly pursuits.

This Day in History -- The World Trade Center Bombing
On this day in 1993 a bomb built by Islamic extremists exploded in the parking garage of New York's World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 others.
Here are the victims of that first attack:
John DiGiovanni, Valley stream, New York
Robert Kirkpatrick, Suffern, New York
Steve Knapp, Manhattan
Monica Smith, Seaford, New York
William Macko, Bayonne, New Jersey
Wilfredo Mercado, Brooklyn
Let's not forget them, or the fact that radical Islamists were at war with us long before 9/11.
