Cynthia, if anything I said or did on this list could benefit the 33
dead and 40something wounded and their families, I would be doing that

I lived within 1/2 hour of NYC when 9/11 occurred and had students in
my class who lost loved ones. I completely understand your
perspective. I could do some limited good for them, being in
proximity. Not in this case.
