Driving without enough sleep is too dangerous!
It's not worth the risk.
A philosopher named Bill Watterson once wrote
"Be careful or be roadkill." This applies to
both drivers and chickens crossing the road.
(Incidentally, "Calvin and Hobbes" was named
after two philosophers.)

I remembered that Larry works at Macy's,
since he was the grandmaster of the Macy's
Thanksgiving Day parade. Since he working
at Macy's, he must not be in the WTC. As
a result, he must be o.k. Anyway, this was
my logical/illogical thinking.
Glad everyone on the mailing list is o.k.

Perhaps more people could have been saved if
there weren't announcements over the loud-
speakers, saying that there was no danger.
Both buildings had these announcements.
