Ground Zero

I copped these two photos off the internet to show what we saw the night we took the subway to Ground Zero. I'll post my photos as soon as I get them developed, but they won't show anymore than these photos do if they show anything at all. By the time we got out of class and arrived at the site it was dark and discovered there was a fence all the way around that prevented us from actually viewing the "hole" four stories below. However, the lack of a "visual" did not alter the sense of tragedy or utter devastation that we all carried in the recesses of our memories of what happened on 9/11 as we stood at the site.

Hillbilly Birth

Deep in the back woods of Letcher County Kentucky a hillbilly's wife went into labor in the middle of the night, and the doctor was called out to assist in the delivery. Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, "Here. You hold this high so I can see what I am doing!"Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world. "Whoa there", said the doctor, "Don't be in such a rush to put that lantern down I think there's another one coming."Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. "Hold that lantern up, don't set it down there's another one!" said the doctor.Within a few minutes he had delivered a third baby. "No, don't be in a hurry to put down that lantern, it seems there's yet another one coming!" cried the doctor.The redneck scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor . . . "You reckon it might be the light that's attractin' 'em?"
