I’m the guy who fixes your cable service… You hardly every see me, I’m not the guy who comes to your house.
But I “turn it off” with hardly a care to “whats on now”… Early Tuesday morning a plane hit a building in NYC…
What kind of moron could have hit the World Trade Center?… And then again later a second time… We were watching Something like CNN, We saw the second plane hit, and realized it even before the “reporters” figured it out. That was another plane!

I turned to my Boss and said: “We can’t shut nothing off today, you realize that don’t you?…” Then I turned to a
co-worker alot younger than I and said:

“What’s next?” I left our building very soon after that and had to make a choice… I could either go about my day and turn people’s Tv’s off just like you who are reading this, or drive down to the Ct. shore where I’m sure I would have saw with my own eyes the plumes of smoke…I admit I decided I didn’t want “to see”… Upon returning to the office, all the other linemen eventually returned, only to find the Pentagon was hit and a “plane” was in trouble in Pa…Rumours now of shooting down any thing that moved…

America stopped for 4 Days… All I want to know is when the “skies” were opened up again on Friday, “Who took off from Oxford, CT airport 1/2 hour before the ban was lifted???
