On this dark, sad, horrific, terrible day ...

I know for a fact that Andy Ager and his wife are
at home and safe - well, as "safe" as someone in NYC
*can* be on 2001-10-11, our generation's Day of Infamy.

Others - Pierre, Phil, Steve, any NYC lurkers - please
report in ASAP and let us know you're okay! PLEASE!!!

Thanks, Don. We're sipping beer and being just generally stunned.
Also annoyed that the phone lines are all snarled up. Bleah.

I know Dave Witzel headed home early in the day, from the west side of
midtown.

And polishing off a bottle of Fin du Monde. I don't expect to be going to
work tomorrow.

The phone is ringing nonstop. I doubt I'll be sleeping much tonight either.
What I witnessed today was horrific -- and I was a couple miles away -- but
I hope no one else ever must go through such hell.

(By the way, it's 2001-09-11. Just trying to help.)

D'oh! Yep, right. Anniversary of ... what, the PLO's
attack at the Munich Olympics? The Palestinian Mandate
of 1922?

Man, what a day. Went to a nice little beer tasting
Sunday night. Never would've thought to wake up to this
just a couple of days later.

Nope. 1972-09-05, but 1972-09-11 was the last day of the games.

That's a hit. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,34198,00.html

Watching the second plane hit (while getting coffee) and the first tower
collapse live on TV was surreal.

So far no bad news from my end, but I am sure some is coming with all
of the friends of friends and friends of family that could have been
down there.

I witnessed the whole horrible thing starting with a plane flying very
low over my head followed by a loud thud leading me to think, "did
that plane just hit the world trade center?" It took turning a corner
to find out. Things just got worse from that point.

Best wishes to anyone else in the city.

Round 'em all up and go have a beer. Burp Castle,
dba, somewhere with good beer at the taps. Go for
at least a couple-three rounds.

Get everyone involved - you, Andy, Dave, Phil, Pierre
Jelenc. Have them all sign the bill. Then, send me
the bill. (Don't go to Lutece for your beer!)

I'll send a re-imbursement check to whomever sends
me the bill. These rounds are on me.

Writing in this group helps take my mind off things.

Wish it were that easy, by the way. Everything south of 14th St. is off-
limits today.

Anyone who wants to come uptown, first round's on me. Second round can be
yours, Don.

The Malted Barley Appreciation Society had a meeting scheduled
for tonight at Mugs Ale House in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Though there is no
reason to fear
any particular danger at this point, and nothing is closed in that borough,
we decided
to cancel our official meeting, because many of our members come from
or through Manhattan, and it may be difficult to get back and forth into
Brooklyn
tonight. I was particularly worried that some folks might not be able to get
back
into Manhattan after the meeting.

As one of the few actual Brooklyn (even Williamburg) residents in the club,
I plan on going to Mugs, and will meet anyone who didn't get the notice
about
this. I plan to toast everyone who suffered through this tragedy.

Most of my relatives in the area are accounted for; the few that aren't
are supposedly out of the country. I'm still waiting to hear about
some friends in the City.

Fucking shit.


Hang in there, New Yorkers!

the pond.

glad people here seem accounted for (?)

thankfully got home O.K.

love, luck & good beer to you all,
Mike.

all my NYers and DCers were accounted for. i went out last night and got
pretty drunk (rogue's 5K ... very sweet and packed quite a punch). went out to
a park afterward to look at the stars ... my first time in 34 years of life
that there were no planes in the sky. it was eerie.

In the ten years we've lived here (good God, I've lived in the same place
for ten years...), there have ALWAYS been three jetliners overhead, any hour
of the day or night, high, but overhead. It is bizarre and disturbing to see
none.

Ummm... Not to talk about beer or anything, but, uh... Where'd you get the
Rogue 5K? I had some of that in Portland and wouldn't mind more.

And then even more bizarre and disturbing to see some last night when I
didn't expect, flying @ very high altitude over the Philly metro
area...fighter jets I presume.

Everything OK here, but severe connectivity problems until this afternoon.

d.b.a. was open Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Everybody appears to be
accounted for.

Good to hear it. This is going to be a long, painful
time of recovery ... hang in there.

I am alive and feel lucky, I was about 1/2 mile away. Everyone was on edge
because of the WTC crashes, some were talking of leaving. I saw the jet
just before it crashed. Something big and silver, nose down going aimed
like a dart straight into it. The fireball was huge, 10 stories high and
our building shook hard. Everyone in our two towers ran to the fire
escapes. Most not knowing what exactly was happening. I had more fear
because I saw what happened. Had visions of jets flying into the buildings
in Pentagon City. It was comforting to finaly see the fighters arrive 10
minutes later.
