Really very powerful weekend Did you go to any of the memorials lisa The nine eleven memorial or anything like that not this weekend no i. I've been to in the past. But i go this weekend. Yeah it's hard you know. I was born in new york city. So i i don't know why but i feel like that's home in many ways even though i didn't live there very long And we was flew back on october. Twenty two thousand one to do a tv. Show back there again. Nobody would go so they were. I was the only guy that they could get for. Live with. Regis and kelly they said. Can you fly us at sure. But i wanted to go out there. Because i wanted to visit ground zero and see and this. I'll never forget the fire department there and all of the flyers on the fences and it was really dramatic since my wife and i have gone back to visit the memorial which is beautiful and then when the museum opened which is right next to the memorial At ground zero we went an eye sobbing. It was so moving That that museum. If you're in new york city got its kind of you have to go to ground. Zero visited Because it's a beautiful memorial and then the museum really really brings home so yeah being able to see the frames of the old buildings underneath their bad loan is pretty bad. The base there. I was there that day. And i remember very well. You're still working there. Yeah now. I i moved out of new york city about six months after that and i remember watching marching across the queensboro bridge with millions of just dumbfounded people in the network to it working. So you didn't know if your friends were live. And you're staring down at southern manhattan watching the giant plume raise and harassed lines. Yeah i'd get a little frustrated with the never forget rhetoric. Because you just don't worry for those of us who lived through it will not We'll talk with jeff on wednesday. Jeff jarvis who is on the path train coming in from new jersey When it hit. And so that station. I was on the train. I was on the seventy train. And i saw the first plume of smoke. Go in and when you climb up out of the subway into manhattan. There was just electric energy in the air. The terror of it was. He's still thinks he has health problems because he was covered with dust and there is no nowhere in the city. You could go where you didn't smell the burning plastic for weeks out in queens and the story was you could smell for real until the thing that most movie at that museum was the.
