Thanks for the kind words. Ten years ago, I wrote similarly about 9/11, and even amid the mounting piles of testimony and reportage, no one seemed to mention most of what I saw.

Since then, I've tried hard to observe exactly what's there, without trying to make myself sound sensitive or good.

If I can do that -- if I can stay free of "The Narrative," as Bloomberg once called it -- the sequence of reported events and their so-called message, which then solidifies into pseudo-history -- then perhaps the actual people I see will be honored. Perhaps they can live just a little bit longer, if only in my head.
