As for myself, I'll just snd you all a copy of the letter I sent to my
personal list tonight.
After the horrendous experience the NYC went through today, I thought I'd let
you all (my family, friends, and joke list) know that I'm okay, and that
uptown NY (above Canal street) is as peaceful and as calm as it ever can
be... Since, the weather is perfect, the traffic is nil, all the bridge and
tunnels are closed, the streets are empty, the city is almost completely
isolated, Central Park is no different that it's ever been (although many
more people are there than on a normal weekday, as it's a good place to
escape from the city's problems and to rap about the scene).
Although most retail stores and theaters are closed, food is plentiful.
Luckily for us uptowners, the wind has been southeast all day and the only
areas that are smoked out are the wall Street Area of lower Manhattan, mid
Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island. Sorry for those rescue workers and other
escapees that have to breathe that cancer causing stuff in the air downtown
-- since the World Trade Center was built before the anti asbestos laws were
All the rest you can see and hear on radio and TV (which is the way all of us
living here know about what's happened, and still happening) -- so I wont go
into the details of the downtown crisis or the political response. All, I
can say is, things are going to be much different in this country after the
rubble is cleared, and I feel the tension, fear and anger already building
up... As it did after (I also slept through) Pearl Harbor and found us in the
midst of war the next day -- which changed my whole life. Who knows what
this horror will lead to? Hopefully, not the long anticipated WW 3...
But, killing and maiming many thousands of innocent sitting duck civilians to
make a political point by unknown religious fanatic terrorists, is far worse
than a sneak attack by a known military force against a few thousand military
personnel and other strategic targets. I can already smell the anger and
resentment in the air that will justify Washington's heavy handed response
against Muslim countries that might lead to a world conflagration -- since
their terrorists will think nothing about dropping one of their A-bombs on a
major European city, as NATO is the real target, and they've already done the
worst they can do to the US. But, it's all up to the ruling powers that be,
and we can't do much about it but wait and see. So, no use worrying about
it. And, keep on smiling. :-)
