I was checking out a message board for the TV show Big Brother, when someone posted that a plane had just hit the WTC. Thinking that it was probably a tiny two seater, I flipped on CNN to check it out. After the words Holy ****, I yelled to my wife to turn on the TV in the bedroom. We're were hypothesizing as to what could have happened. I had decided that it was an attack and then I saw the moving dot and the other explosion. The reporter didn't catch on right away, but my wife and I looked at each other, jaws to the ground. I plopped in a tape and started recording. Before I had to go to work, I had heard about the Pentagon and the fourth plane. Before classes started I saw the towers collapse and thought there were possible tens of thousands dead. We were told to keep the TV's off so as not to overload the kids. Regardless, it was a pretty quiet day. My wife told me that a coworker's son said that every channel on Directv (it could be hacked at that time) was showing the news- even the porno channels. When I got home there was so much on TV, I have yet to see what is on the tape. I suppose it's the same as what's going to be on CNN's webcast on Monday.
