Suspecting that there would be plenty of people making observations apportioning blame, I thought I'd ask what people remember personally about where they were that day. What were you doing when you first heard what was going on? Please, no politics for a change. Maybe we can get through a whole thread without someone deciding that they have to blame someone. Maybe the whole thread can be about respect for those who died, pity for those left to grieve, and support for those who worked so hard (irrespective of their political leanings) and in many cases gave their lives, to help with rescue efforts. If we can get through a whole day without two groups ending up fighting each other about stupid partizan irrelevancies, maybe that would be truly demonstrating respect as opposed to just saying it. So, where were you that day? BTW - can I suggest to all readers that neg rep would be a good way to respond to anyone making a politically loaded post? I have never neg repped anyone in 3 years on this board, but on this particular thread I will dispense with that principle.
