9/11 on 9/11

An amazing thing about blogs, and the internet, is that you can read, right now, with a click, the real-time reactions of people to 9/11, on 9/11. Want to hear what people were thinking? Here, for example, was Glenn Reynolds, as it was happening.

No editors, no news cycle, no talking heads telling you "what Americans think," no politicians spinning it, no Bowdlerizing.

Remember, too, that, at that point, Glenn was just another random blogger, with a blog readership sort of like mine.

Some anniversary I'm gonna do a post on what all the bloggers we now know and (mostly) love were talking about the day before 9/11.
