a brief recollection

It seems strange to me that it's been 10 years since the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. I was home sick that day, curled up in Mom's chair with a blanket trying not to hurt. I was in the same place two years earlier when the Waco complex was blown up by the ATF/FBI/etc. Funny.

Four years and one day after Oklahoma City I was working on a paper in my bedroom with the LA news on when they broke in with the Columbine shooting story.

This week in history mostly sucks. Let's get on with it.

I was in Japan discussing their terrorist incident with the nerve gas in the Tokyo subway when the Murrah bombing occurred.

Now I work for a different company, and I live in France.

Odd how things work out over a decade.
