As you might have heard, the city of New York was "Forced to Release 911 tapes from September 11th" today.
Here is an excerpt from the WNYC article:
NEW YORK, NY March 31, 2006 —Some of the family members have heard them. The September 11th commission has heard them. Today, the public will get its first chance to hear tapes from the 911 emergency dispatch center on the day of the World Trade Center Attacks. WNYC's Fred Mogul has more.
The City has fought the release of the recordings, but several families, together with the New York Times, have won the legal battle to make them public. Earlier this week, several family members received the tapes. Some have said they do no want to listen to them.
Tangentially, Platial member edshepp just posted his "where I was" story yesterday, and created an open map for anyone to add their own story as well. It's called Where I was When 9/11 Happened. This same kind of map could be created for so many things, as the big catastrophic events tend to seer a Place memory into our hearts.
