Jan. 28th, 2011

It's still so clear to me, I remember it like it was yesterday. I was sitting at my desk at work trying to fill out my time-card. All of a sudden this guy runs by and says that the Challenger exploded. Nobody believed him. Then somebody turned on a TV and we saw that the shuttle had crashed into the World Trade Center.

My boss said, hey, isn't President Kennedy piloting that thing? so somebody flips over to CNN and sure enough, our hero pilot president was assassinated during liftoff and the whole thing crashed into the WTC South Tower. We watched video of Jackie O going apeshit with columns of smoke over New York in the background.

Then of course the Hindenburg hit the North Tower and everybody was crying. I can't forget that moment when everything bad that ever happened, happened at the same time so long ago.
Kicking off Owlcon this evening. I will continue Torch next Friday.
