I should have said "AND the additional tragedy of children
left orphaned, and pets left abandoned..."
I should have said "Your comment about crew 'having to focus'..."

You wrote, 'How many pets died on board the aircraft on 9/11? Nobody asked.'
Really? How do you know?
MANY asked--The additional tragedy of orphaned children, and pets left behind, only added to the numbing totality of grief on that day and in the ensuing weeks. In the NYC area, where people are more dependent on neighbors than one might imagine, neighborhoods were bereft.
And yet at least in the NYC area, MANY of those same grief-stricken family members and neighbors rescued animals which had been left (some for a long time), knowing the deceased (or "missing") lived alone--save for a pet.
Ask yourself who "nobody" is.
And your comment about crew 'focusing' on rescuing animals is ridiculous on its face. Priorities are not exclusive.
Jan 16th 2009 7:04PM How unfortunate to have praise for such a miraculous event tainted with such an uncalled-for expression of disgust. Really. And self-contradicting to boot. Sad. Unwarranted.
