Yes, she's been responding on some offshoot threads. She's ok, but hasn't heard from Yorik either.

The idea of using an airplane to attack a US Federal building was used by Tom Clancy in one of his novels.

I'm in Midtown, Don't bother trying, the phone systems are down. They are actually intermitenet, I can get through 1 out of 10 times. They are being reserved for emegency only.

My old office was evacuated downtown, thank God none of my friends were hurt. I don't know what they are doing now, but know that they are ok.

Wall Street is close to the WTC, but I think they are ok. I bet they were evacuated, and are probably ok. The mayor has told everyone to head north, away from the WTC. I'm sure that everyone is headed this way.

So that's why ABC News was interviewing him. I couldn't figure out why he was on the air. I didn't figure he was a consultant or anything.

true, true...But I have to wonder if these individuals would have REALLY used our movies and books to get ideas. It was just the most tactical approach to what they had decided to do. God help them if they are ever caught! My husband is worried that if they declare war and re-active units that he'll be called in, but right now, my Mother and I are ready to take up arms OURSELVES to get these guys. Of course, she and I were both raised in military families, so we tend to want to go to the defense. I've said for years that I don't care if they want women on the front lines or not - if the fighting hits home, they'll get women on the front lines!!!!! And I'll be the first!
