Back that morning, I was on PST and doing volunteer work on a sign for my community before the sun came up. I observed one guy hand it over to Steeve Doocy and watched for probably half-an-hour. Then to the True Value hardware store to buy two American flags, one for the shop and one for the home.
Then back to the sewer contract, opening up manholes and measuring the depth with a dirty tape measure. Hearing the Pentagon get hit, and the towers fall, and the unbeknownst to me heroism over Pennsylvania from the pickup truck.
