Who, When, Why, What, Where and How?

I recall being on Broadway in Manhattan when the first plane crashed. My Associated Press office was located at 1995 Broadway, where I stayed with my Tocayo Bob Feldmnan to service AP's hundreds of clients until I later decided to visit Ground Zero. There, I ran into a former staff member, who asked if I was OK? My eyes turned watery, while I tried to assure myself that it was from dust and not rage that human beings could do this to US.
