Oct. 13th, 2001

Been thinking a lot about the news, wondering. And I'm curious if anyone else here is thinking about this.

Tell me, do you feel safe and secure in Austin? Can you imagine a suicide bomber on a bus, or someone attacking the Tower? Do you worry, ever?

Before, the most horrible things I could imagine here were the Tower shootings, and motorists killing pedestrians or cyclers. Trying to imagine a terrorist act here is a strange exercise. I've always thought terrorism possible, but so remote. Okahoma City was hundred of miles away, the bombings of US embassies and the USS Cole were overseas, and the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center was half the country away. To me, it was always just the news. Not right here.

I wonder how prepared the city and state administration is. How they would handle something happening here.

Just something I have been thinking about. How odd, isn't it, to be evalutating the possibilities of terrorism while riding Capitol Metro.
