"Yesterday" - (earliest questions and fears) by Barbara Nimri Aziz [pulled from my 2001 archive]

September 12, 2016
http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/09/12/yesterday-2001/ Sept. 11, 2001, yesterday was a Tuesday, the day I head to New York City for my radio show. I make my way out of the quiet hills 200 km northeast of the city to drive to the metropolis. WBAI Pacifica Radio where I broadcast two weekly programs is located in lower Manhattan. I would not reach there this Tuesday.
