Rich(bodhránai gan ciall) AMERICAN ATTACKS---PART THREE (115* d) RE: AMERICAN ATTACKS---PART THREE 11 Sep 01


God, this is fucked up!! We watched a lot of it at work. A friend of mine has a tv in his office. I still can't fathom it. And to think of what's to come. The continued loss of life, the fear, the hatred....If we follow suit to go along with th Pearl Harbor analogy that keeps being repeated, it's going to horribly dangerous for people of Arab descent in this country. A couple of weeks ago, I was eating at restaurants in Middle Eastern neighborhoods on Chicago's North Side and treated quite nicely. Now these people might very well be treated like Asian-Americans during WWII. As I type, they are announcing explosions in Kabul, Afghanistan, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Part of me isn't too upset about us (if it is us) attacking a likely responsible party, and part of me feels guilty about that part.

The 4th plane that landed in Western PA could have been intended to hit a few blocks from where I work. Bell-Telephone/Verizon here in Pittsburgh is a major hub of both phone and internet communications in this country.

I'm getting more upset as I write.
Will write more later.

Rich
