NY Times Letters to the Editor:

Two good ‘uns.  Faith and the Atlantic Divide.  And, a former Iran hostage comments in Our Prisoners at Guantanamo.  The second letter mistakes the prisoners at Gitmo for *convicted* terrorists, rather than suspects harvested by combat operations.  A pretty big difference.

NY Times:

has pics of the results of the “Great Blackout.”  Just reminds me of what my father used to yell up the stairs, when we’d go in to visit Manhattan: “Wear sturdy shoes!”



Later: Grant Barrett at World New York has more.  Well-written and illustrated.  Thanks, Cam.
