I really hope there wasn't 50,000 people at work at the time. Thats just
way, way too fucked up. Anyway, why the WTC? I wouldn't have figured it to
be a centre or symbol of Americanism? The Pentagon and State dept. sure,

without any US intelligence finding out? This is so bad, considering
George Bush Snr's little gulf war jaunt over Kuwait, one wonders what dubya
is going to do. I know his old man was a bit crazy, but dubya's mad as a
coot! Oh fuck!!!
