the WTC once stood. From my office in downtown Brooklyn I have a direct line of sight view towards the WTC. The only thing I view is puffs of white smoke drifting up against the clear blue sky. Previous to today, I always glanced at the WTC. But no more. Subway travel to Brooklyn wsa re-routed away from the WTC area. I had to travel a circuitous route in order to get to my office. Traveling tonight over the Manhattan Bridge back to Manhattan (via subway - the Q line), I glanced out my window to watch pillows of white smoke against the black sky. I felt very sad that my city was attacked. I felt part of me died yesterday. And every day that I glance out my office window in the direction of where the WTC once stood, I will wonder, why did this have to happen?

I read your posts and appreciate your updates. The Thursday US Treasury market opened strong with the flight for quality going on. Several of us in our brokerage firm knew some folks at Morgan Stanley and Cantor Fitzgerald. Looks like some of them didn't make it out.

In a much smaller way I can relate. We used to have a beautiful covered bridge about 2 miles from where I live. While I was away in the USMC, someone torched it. The first time I came home and turned down the hill where I should have been able to see it, and it wasn't there "in the skyline", I got a disturbing feeling.
Hang in there Joe, and keep up your good work.

I tell it like I see it.
