Shock

// September 13th, 2001 // Politics

The sense of shock in Sydney yesterday was quite amazing… walking down the streets surrounded by skyscrapers I felt scarily unsafe and caught myself with little nervous pangs every time I heard a plane. Have been glued to whatever coverage I can find over the net and tv.

Here are a few of the more interesting articles and points of view I have come across:

  • Michael Moore posted this message on his website today. You can always count on Mike for a different perspective on the world and America’s place in it. “Will we ever get to the point that we realize we will be more secure when the rest of the world isn’t living in poverty so we can have nice running shoes?”
  • A spooky Nostradamus verse that was doing the rounds of email intrays today has been revealed as a hoax! (thanks to Lynne) More information here.
  • Great article on the Sydney Morning Herald site – Echoes of Rome in an empire that must, eventually, pass away

And for something to distract you from the world’s troubles – Direct your own Bardot music clip!

In boring mundane house news, many thanks to Jake who helped us lay the lino at Hugo St kitchen last night, well actually he pretty much did it while we shouted out panicked comments from the sidelines. Anyway it looks great and we are nearly at actual renting out stage!
