Can't say this proves anything, but it is interesting.

1 TERROR DRILLS IN CHICAGO, SEPTEMBER 2006: ARTICLE AND EMBEDDED MAP

Evacuation drill called quick, successful
By James Janega and Aamer Madhani
Tribune staff reporters

A rush-hour evacuation drill of four West Loop office buildings emptied 3,000 willing participants from their cubicles, sending them in orderly, chatting streams across the river in a drill city officials called a promising test of Chicago's response to a terrorist attack.

Despite blaring sirens and a hypothetical scenario involving a bomb going off in the Loop, Thursday afternoon's evacuation of high-rises at Monroe Street and Wacker Drive was lighthearted, and participants said it seemed surprisingly quick.

Nevertheless, it was a serious undertaking, many said. Chicago officials said the drill would be parsed to improve responses in real emergencies. Federal agencies and fire departments from around the country asked for lessons learned and even DVDs of the heavily videotaped event.

I doubt the next 'attack' (and I am sure there will be one) will be airplanes flying into buildings. The 'terrorists' like to keep us on our toes, you know.

Actually, there is finally talk about the first attack not being from airplanes, but planned ahead and a controlled implosion. A bomb is pretty much the same thing? They are both very impressive--and deadly!

Does anyone know what stocks were taking off when the first attack happened? Is that where we can get clues from? People who can do so, please watch the stock market.

Yes, GR, this all looks 'curiouser and curiouser'.
