February 26. 2/26. It doesn’t usually ring a bell the way, say, 9/11 does. But it was 18 years ago tomorrow that the World Trade Center was bombed.
The 9/11 Memorial Museum is publishing a series of posts about 2/26 and today provides Carl Selinger’s last letter. He was stuck in a smoke-filled elevator and thought he was going to die (click image for larger version).
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
