If you have the means,  SEP 12 2001

If you have the means, you might consider donating to the Red Cross or Salvation Army, which you may do online by several methods: via Amazon, via PayPal, via the Red Cross site, via the Salvation Army site, via Yahoo PayDirect.

And don't forget to donate blood in the next few days if you can, even if you don't live on the east coast.

I'm still updating the links I posted yesterday (scroll down to yesterday's entry). Most of them are eyewitness accounts of people who were present at the sites of the terrorist actions, many include photos. This is the stuff you're not seeing on the news, thoughts and images from real people from the scenes as it happened, a more human take than all the analysis and politics on the television. Even though the News Web Sites Could Not Compete With TV, the Personal Web certainly shined. If you've got a personal site or if you're a reporter at a network or newspaper, consider using these links in your coverage rather than more analysis from talking heads.

Satellite photos of Manhattan: before the attack & after the attack. (Ground level before and after)

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE people, think before you speak. Don't frighten your fellow men and women even more than they already are...what about if someone said that kind of crap to you? Jish, you're welcome to come over to my house and have something to eat (we've got brownies!).

A news/information include has been set up...you can see it in action at the top right corner of this page. You can include this mini news feed on your site by following the directions on this page.

An excellent multimedia display of what exactly happened with the planes and such. Wow.
