    Stevie was seeing the future:

    He’s a man
    With a plan
    Got a counterfeit dollar in his hand
    He’s Misstra Know-It-All

    Playin’ hard

    He’s the coolest one with the biggest mouth
    He’s Misstra Know-It-All

    If you tell him he’s livin’ fast
    He will say what do you know
    If you had my kind of cash
    You’d have more than one place to go oh

    Any place
    He will play
    His only concern is how much you’ll pay
    He’s Misstra Know-It-All

    If he shakes
    On a bet
    He’s the kind of dude that won’t pay his debt
    He’s Misstra Know-It-All

    When you say that he’s living wrong
    He’ll tell you he knows he’s livin’ right
    And you’d be a stronger man
    if you took Misstra Know-It- All’s advice oh oh

    Oou…oou…oou oou…oou…

    He’s a man
    With a plan
    Got a counterfeit dollar in his hand
    He’s Misstra Know-It-All

    Can this line
    Take his hand
    Take your hat off to the man who’s got the plan
    He’s Misstra Know-It-All

    Every boy take your hand
    To the man that’s got the plan

    I usually get up, take a shower and leave for work. Missus X remarked that a plane had hit one of the towers, and I was thinking a Cessna just ate it.
    As I was pulling out of the driveway, my neighbor pulled up and told me the story… I smiled because I thought he was joking.
    My neighbor never looked at me the same way again.

    I was living on the lower east side of Manhattan and saw it with my own eyes. Needless to say I was pretty pissed and ultimately my search for answers led me to LGF within a few weeks.

    We had a construction project bid date that morning, and people started calling up asking to postpone it. I still didn’t get it until a guy who rented space from us brought in a portable TV.

    I was stunned.

    I watched the second plane hit from my kitchen windows on the Brooklyn side; watched the towers crumble and Manhattan dissolve under a cloud of dust; watched memoranda fluttering down in my backyard and the street all day.

    Hey, that was funn! Hope I didn’t sound like a goon.

    I just wanted to remind folks to support Sharron Angle in her campaign to kick Harry Reid out of the Senate. Reid has a war chest of $25 million and Sharron will need help. She’s asking for 1 million like-minded people to help her out with a donation of $25. Defeating Harry Reid is key to the success that conservatives will have in November. Here is Sharron Angle’s website.

    I’m in!

    I guess we were all stunned by the 9/11 attacks, but being right there where it’s happening has got to leave a real impact on you.

    Quite frankly, I’m still IRATE that we haven’t caught Osama Bin Laden and put a bullet in his head…

    The movie “Flight 93” should be aired on regular television without any commercial interruption every year.

    The movie has no graphic violence, but it shows 90 minutes of true (and assumed) events in real time.

    I watched it on TV -- living in LA at the time -- and had the fortunate/unfortunate opportunity to travel there and saw the damage in 02. I went to Manhattan on a business trip and helped secure a huge account -yah, good news- and then after the meeting saw ground zero. We all wept.

    It was surreal. It was also surreal seeing all of the people streaming up East Broadway towards Grand Street (where I lived) and ultimately crossing the Williamsburg Bridge. A sea of people in the streets, some sobbing, some just walking. In the following days it was still weird. No traffic below Houston except for emergency vehicles.

    You’re right. I remember exactly where I was. I was working in a record store in Austin, TX and a fellow employee came in and told us about it. We didn’t have a TV at the store so I didn’t see the images until I got off work and went home. Another sad day, in a different, but no less poignant, way.

    I think I was one of the last people in America to find out about 9/11.

    I was working graveyard shift and going to grad school in the evening, so I slept during the day back then. I got up at about 2:30 in the afternoon (mountain time, so it was already 4:30 in NYC) and saw the message light on my phone flashing.

    It was a message from my school, and all it said was, “Due to the events in New York and Washington, today’s classes have been cancelled.”

    At that point, I had no earthly idea what was going on, since I was in Santa Fe. I couldn’t think of anything that could have happened in NYC that would affect us. Then I turned on the TV set.

    They were in the middle of rerunning the morning’s coverage, so it still took about 20 minutes for me to be able to figure out what had happened.

    The video store near me went out of business and “Flight 93″ was on sale. I couldn’t bring myself to buy it because it was such a horrible, hopeless event… heroic for the people on board to do what they did… but I just can’t bear to watch it.

    Absolutely right Buzz. I was living below Houston on the Lower East Side and it was very quiet in the following days. No newspaper deliveries and the neighborhood grocery stores nearly ran out of things. The bodega across the street run by guys from Yemin closed shop for a couple of days. I think they were worried about some sort of retaliation or something.

    I’ll never forget the nearby firehouse on Broome with all of the candles and flowers in front. And in the following days all of the missing person flyers posted everywhere. I felt very uncertain in those immediately following days. About what, I don’t know. Just uncertain.

    There were, and are, a lot of jihadis in my neighborhood; one of the guys involved in WTC 1, who was related to the guy who murdered Kahane, lived there, as did some idiots who were planning a suicide bombing of one of the major subway stations.

    Brownstone Brooklyn is full of jihadis; Cobble Hill and the Atlantic Avenue corridor; Park Slope/Windsor Terrace (the delis there used to have Holy Land Foundation collecting boxes on the counter); and, of course, Bay Ridge.

    I’m in the Slope area; we get a lot of headscarves, we have several madrassas, we get a few ninjas now and then.

    Talking 9/11? I remember that day all to well, actually that week. I was on a long delayed vacation up at my dads place with his girlfriend. We were eating breakfast and listening to the radio and the news came on about a plane hitting the WTC tower. I finished breakfast and went to the living room and turned on the t.v. to a news channel, just in time to see the second plane hit. I spent the rest of the day curled up on the couch wrapped in a comforter. I was so cold physically for the rest of the day. I remember the panic, the misinformation that was spreading on the channels. And later on in the day when I went out side, the silence of the skies. It’s one of those weeks I will never forget.

    It’s funny, in NYC the skies were noisy for the fist time. We had military choppers and jets flying overhead for the next couple of days. In the first few hours after the towers collapsed and we heard the first fighter jet fly by we didn’t know if it was another attack or what. It was pretty scary.

    Short of a full-scale invasion, it would be pretty hard to find one person in a city that size without a bit more information.

    One last 9/11 story, since I should be gone by now.

    A couple days after the attack, my then-synagogue had a special “prayer evening” which I went to—and found a mess of people strumming guitars and singing, “Lo yisa goy el goy cherev” (“Nation shall not lift up sword against nation”) and various other peacenik ditties.

    I found myself saying to my until-then fellow-congregants, “What about ‘zachor et Amalek?” (“Remember Amalek, and what he did to you?”)—and they all edged away as if I had said something obscene.

    That was when I knew it was time to change congregations.

    911

    I was in the basement of a customers 105 year old house that I was doing a blow out high end wing addition on. I was taking a break from demoing their kitchen by playing the intro riff to South Bound that he had just taught me the evening before on his 67 Sunburst Les Paul (nice guy I know). Wife called and told me to turn on the news, that a plane had just flown into the tower. I did, I looked and told her it wasn’t an accident because it looked like larger damage than a small plane. Second one went in later, I told her who it was who did it…OBL. I was already up on the ME, was a subscriber to Commentary, Middle East Report, and Foreign Affairs, and was a bit stricken but not suprised in the least.

    AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 587 on 11/12/01

    Some of the events burned into my memory:

    The Cuban missile crisis: Base housing, Carswell AFB, Fort Worth, Texas. The sound trucks were driving around telling everyone, “get under your house, a bomb may drop.” The base houses had a hatch in the floor that led to the space between the floor and the ground.

    JFK’s murder: We had just opened our books in class when the announcement came over the P.A. that he had been shot. We had just returned to school after seeing him in Fort Worth. He was traveling from a breakfast meeting to Carswell AFB to make the hop to Love Field. He stopped the motorcade and chatted for a couple of minutes when he saw the Monsignor standing along side the highway, with all of use Catholic school kids. I was standing next to Monsignor.

    Charles Whitman: Sitting on the curb in front of the house listening to a transistor radio with a couple of friends. I grabbed my dad’s binoculars and we went to the top of the highest hill in the neighborhood, to see if we could see what was happening. We could see the UT Tower alright but not what was going on.

    Challenger: On my way to a service call in Corpus Christi, Heard it on the radio, I had to pull over to the side of the road for a few minutes.

    9/11: My now ex-girlfriend demanded I skip work that day because we had to ‘talk’, I went to work. The first plane had just hit as I walked into the office, someone in the office yelled to turn on the TV. Saw the second one hit on TV, shortly thereafter they sent us home because we were in a high rise in Houston and no one knew what was going on at the time. When I got home she assumed I came home so she could ‘talk’. I walked in, flipped on the TV and told her what had just happened. She said to turn off the TV because ‘our’ ‘talk’ was more important. Needless to say….. found out later she was using crack at the time… oh well.

Why the H-E-(double hockey sticks) hasn’t anyone just bought the land and said: “Screw you, and the minaret you rode in on!”
