2012 Note: Everything on this page and on the posts to which it links is copied directly from the website I was writing at the time. I’ve only fixed a bit of spelling and taken out a bunch of long-dead links. The last six lines on this page refer to pages I’ve decided not to re-post, at least for now. If you would like to see anything listed here, please email me.
This page is a response to emails and calls from my friends and family around the world. It has my impressions and experiences being in New York right now and pictures and stories from some of my friends.
It is not inspiring.
It is not complete.
It is not necessarily accurate.
It is not formatted or pretty, and it doesn’t use Flash.
It’s just what I’ve seen or heard.
Day One Finding out, going downtown, watching it happen
Day Two City tries to respond, beginning to hear from people
Day Three Recovery ramps up
Day Four Plodding on
Day Five Dumptrucks and memorials
Day Six Refugees and waste
Day Seven I can’t write, but others do
Six Weeks Later Still angry and sad
Better Days Ivan and I visit the World Trade Center
Jugglers List of New York-area jugglers confirmed alive and okay
Other stuff that I had up back then, but it’s not mine (and many of the links are dead), so I’m not re-posting them.
