  •  I was in Midtown on 9/11 (12+ / 0-)

    and Rudy immediately got all his testosterone up.

    But the truth is, you really can't cower. It took far too long for Chinatown to recover -- yet recover it did.

    One of the first responders was the fire station at about 50th St. and 9th Ave. -- not too far north of my apartment.

    Many of them died.

    Boston will recover. Will get over this. Not soon, but...the human spirit is resilient.

    All my condolences for the bereaved and the maimed.

    •  9/11 was two things, at least (7+ / 0-)

      You and I had months of 9/11. Television 9/11 was something different. The millions who experienced the thing at home got it in narrative arcs, very convenient ones, and they were already thinking "Who do we bomb" while we were avoiding the smoke.

      Everyone is innocent of some crime.

      of LEO, I've seen some shitful things. How this was handled, from bombs going off to the capture, should be a texbook for the rest of the country.

      The unsourced, unreasearched tweets, the multiple diaries with the word "breaking", the speculation on this site was hurtful and stupid. A commenter suggested a plan for next time.

      I suggest a mothership diary WHERE INFORMATION IS sourced, GODDAMIT.

      Yes, we will recover. Please DO NOT contribute to the Red Cross, contribute to "The One Fund, if you are able and are so inclined. I have not heard of a fund for Texas. John Hancock insurance company that supports the Marathon, seeded The One Fund with a million dollars.

      It would be nice if some oil company or top 400 person from Texas dropped a bit into the pot.

      Now I've got some home made cards to send. I wish I had a gazillion dollars to put inside them.

      At doctor ran the Marathon, then went and did trama surgery into the night. I can confirm at least two other doctors that ran the Marathon then treated people.

      I can confirm that vets of the Mideast expletive were there to treat people. One commented about PTSS returning.

      Little Martin? That peace picture? His teacher was doing a learning moment about Traynor(I hope I am spelling it right.)  h/t noweasels.

      We adults have failed our children. I don't have children of my own. I am reminded of a man that was asked at the Wall. "Which of the Vietnam soldiers is yours?"

      The man replied, "All of them, son, all of them."
