Today (Wednesday) I’m taking in a conference on the psychological impact of disaster, being held in Brooklyn Center. It features several panels about the I-35W bridge collapse which include victims of the disaster and responders. I’m hoping I’ll be able to find a wireless connection to live blog a few seminars. If not, there’ll be a large post later on today.
