The article presents the views of Steve Commander, owner of Web-based virtual mall company Quixtar, on supporting U.S. Senator John McCain's campaign for the presidency. It is inferred that Commander became a McCain supporter because he almost lost his son in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. He relates that on the day of the attack, his son and his construction company were going to the building's 86th floor, but because the supplies never arrived, their job was called off and they all went home.
