VDARE reports: This New York lawyer is (we think) the last member of VDARE`s New York family to report in after yesterday`s terrorist attacks. We hope to resume posting tomorrow.


I am fine; many thanks for asking. My office is a block from where WTC was (!), looking across at it, so I saw everything, including all the falling people.  I heard what sounded like a low-level fighter, so looked out in time to get a good look at the first jet in.  As you can imagine, after that we didn`t look away for long until the buildings collapsed and we all ran for the stairwell.  Our building got smoky and dirty; no more.  When I went to give blood, they asked all military types to help with rescue.  Unfortunately, after hours of aimless milling about, it became obvious that no-one was going to use us for anything, so most of us went home.  I hope John was uptown and well out of it.

Thank you for the law review article [on the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment], it looks great and has some arguments relevant to the recent mail.  I`m a little too flustered to read it intelligently just now, though.
