“Unnerved” in NYC by Explosion

There was an explosion in midtown Manhattan yesterday, about 4 blocks from where I was working…

The New York Times reported today that New Yorkers were “unnerved” which was certainly the case on the street when it happened. With the constant reminders of terrorism the government scares the shit out of everyone (and gains support for the war in Iraq?) instead of reminding us how incredibly resilient we are when needed.
