Sorry, Eric, didn't mean to be obtuse!

With the worm in the computers and the massive power failure, most people I know were immediately drawn back to 9/11. It was a great relief to learn that the power failure was NOT because someone or some group (Osama bin Laden) was attempting to sabotage us.

I think that relief carried into folks' behavior. Everyone has been very patient and I think that's a result of not being fearful about terrorism. I'll take a dozen power failures over ONE successful sabotage!

Is that more clear?

Hang in there it is on the way. Mine came back on about 7:30. Less than a mile away had been on since 9 am, so it is hit and miss. But it is nice to have it back, that generator sure does suck some gas.

Update:

I spoke with the producer in NY this morning, they have rescheduled the segment to air this Friday the 22nd, at 5:30-6:00 MDT, check your local listings. Again it's supposed to be at the end of the the NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw...kind of a "have a good weekend" segment...hopefully no more crisis will preempt us...
