    While we are all naturally extremely concerned for the safety of our fellow BBer's in NY and DC, I realized last night that we hadn't given much thought to our friends on the west coast - the destination for all the flights involved. I hope and pray that none of our west coast friends have lost family or friends in this tragedy.

    there are many people from Massachusetts who lost there lives on the planes, since that is where 2 of the planes left from...including the pilot from Lowell, MA.

    Good point Smart Alec - the impacts of this are going to be so widespread.

    Before I leave for the weekend to do the stupid things I have to do instead of ride, I have to believe that the missing are just making it through chaos for now, and that they will reappear SOON.

    Keep asking in my absence, please, for all those that are not here are still very much missed.

    Thank you all so much for your concern! I do work down there, but unfortunately have only very recently been able to get back logged in to my laptop (from home). My office is about 10 blocks south of what used to be the Trade Centers, but I was not there that morning. I spend alot of time out of the office seeing clients and was fortunately headed to midtown when this whole event happened. Unfortunately, I had clients on the 89th Floor of WTC2 (Keefe, Bryuette & Woods) who are all still unaccounted for. There are 67 people from there still missing and I knew about 20 of the traders. I am very upset, because I knew them very well and spent a considerable amount of time with them. Its very difficult to see pictures of them every time I leave my apartment, turn on the TV or open the paper. They were wonderful people and I could tell you something personal about every single one of them.

    Right now I am having a very hard time dealing with all of this. I am actually planning on heading out of town tomorrow for the weekend to hopefully clear my head a bit.

    I have not gone down to my office. I don't even think we have power there yet. I'm not sure when I will be able to get there, so for the time being I can log on from home. Which in one way is good, but on the other had, I feel like I'm losing my "routine."

    Something else which makes this very difficult is that my father died when I was 19, and this whole staggering loss of so many people brings back so many emotions. Not to mention that my father is buried in Arlington and was a colonel in the Marines, so I'm sure he would have had some choice words about all of this. All I have to say is that I am lucky, I know where he is. I think of all of those people who are looking for closure with their loved ones.

    Again thank you all so much for your concern. Sorry if this is so rambling, I'm a little out of it. Take care all.

    Genie

    Miniwelsh... That's very scary. I just did a Nexis search of all the major papers published over the last seven days, and no mention of any "Genie" having been reported missing.... Wait, she is back! Go, nycitygirl!

    Actually, my own stupid company had me listed as missing until last Friday, even though myself and 2 other people called in to say I was OK. And management wonders why we went bankrupt...
