September 2001

The Unknown Enemy

The Unknown Enemy

Predictions & Observations

We mourn the victims of the WTC and Pentagon attacks.

From Terror to Horror

Note: I hadn't updated the blog for a week or so. Partly because putting these thoughts to the screen can be a difficult task, and also due to the occurence of the Jewish New Year, and a busy schedule on the work front. I appreciate the many e-mails and kind notes, and the incredible amount of links bringing readers to this space.

From Terror to Horror

It is far from over. According to local News reports, there are three fires still burning in the WTC wreckage, presenting difficulty to the NYFD.

Franco, a Native Son, Is Touched by His `Big Family'

This is from the Saturday, September 15, 2001 NY Times. It is merely the text version, but you may be able to see it as it appeared on the Times' site if you click here before they decide the article is old enough to charge you to take a look-see.

An Indiana Town Re-thinks Attitudes About NYC

This is a ctrl-c / ctrl-v copy (copy & paste)of a story from the Spetember 15, 2001 New York Times. Hopefully you can see the whole thing in its entirety, pictures and all, here:

http://nytimes.com/2001/09/15/national/15INDI.html

The Times, however, has this ridiculous policy about signing in, and charging for old news. Their fishwrapper, or so it seems, has value. Yes, the Times will sell you yesterday's news. So if you are so-inclined, buy it.

A DEEP BREATH

A DEEP BREATH

Now is the time to take a deep breath. Maybe more than just one. As many as it may take until there is a greater sense of calm. Personal calm.

Those who have lost (or fear so, due to the lack of surety) loved ones are not expected to calm down anytime soon. Those whose lives have been unceremoniously and unjustly turned upside down are less likely to be calm in the short term.

Then there's the rest of us.

New Yorkers have a certain grit for which they are famous. In a melting pot country, there is no greater melting pot city than New York.

THE DAY AFTER

Fear begets fear

The Day After brings a rash of thoughts. What's next? More terrorist activity? Further building collapses in lower Manhattan? An end to the blaze still going at the Pentagon?

I dread the thought of the finger-pointing and the general, non-specific, bigoted hatred response. We must be sure not to subject Middle Easterners to "Guilt by Turban." Middle Easterners surely were among those who died in yesterday's carnage.

BLACK TUESDAY

SPAMINATOR SLAMS (you know who!)

SPAMINATOR SLAMS (you know who!)

The Earthlink National ISP TV ad campaign, ìWe donít sell your information,î aka, ìThe Spaminatorî is a splendid example of excellence in advertising. Despite absolutely no mention of the competitor, the ads in the campaign are a great attack on AOL.
