Well my pretties... by d.- on 2001-09-11 10:12:18

total speechlessness is the only way to describe the feelings watching the Twin Towers collapse LIVE and in real time on television... completely not believable... The stock exchange closed, the Pentagon bombed, airports, state and federal buildings ALL closed ALL across the country... it's totally surreal. And see how quickly the infrastructure is undermined. It's no joke. Here, in L.A., there is tactical and also anti-terrorist preparations in place as I speak (and write). If these are the short-term effects, what of the LONG-TERM? This truly is, as Schlong says, "the first day of a new world". You are spot on, Schlong! I will be your makeshift correspondent at your service... Peace, d.-

  I think it's absurd and pathetic that the whole country is shutting down like this. It's like people want to be able to play Under Attack! too.

  Oh, they were good..very good. And, how many sophisticated weapons systems did they have to buy?

  Writing from near the site of the event, I find it hard to say that the shut-downs were an overreaction. It has become clear to me that as soon as things began to hit the fan, people across the country began to activate their emergency plans. Now, the thing about emergencies is, you really can't tell what might emerge. And once you start the plan in motion, it is a very bad idea to change plans in midstream. It may appear at first blush to be too much, but based on early information, a lot of people had to make decisions in a hurry. I do believe that some lives were saved by conservative response plans. And here is my own response plan suggestion for all of YOU: Along with thousands of lives, millions of financial records may also have been destroyed, or rendered inaccessible for weeks to come. Keep your bills and cancelled checks in HARD COPY for the rest of this year at least. Even if you have never been to New York, your money has. Don't count on someone else's computer to sort you out.
