(1) Introduction: I was kicked out of the Reed College Alumni Web Conference following the World Trade Center incident of 9/11/2001. Some objected to my posting "Reed:89.6716", maybe someone thought (secretly) that I would fan the flames of animosity against New York City. I tried to rephrase that posting in "Terrorism:8.941", the Cafe Utne Terrorism conference. One of the hosts of the Reed Conference told me that he would "maybe" let me back in after New Years, 2002, but (so far) he hasn't let me back in. I took advice in Reed's "Conference Housekeeping" topic to visit this D-Word Conference instead. Very few Reed Alumni will read me here, sad to say.
(2) Documentary: I was in Connecticut on 9/11/2001. Shortly after the WTC disaster, I saw a documentary film on Connecticut Public Television. Earlier that year I had heard the broadcast of Ken Burn's Jazz documentary on Miami, Florida's WDNA-FM radio, but CPTV showed a portion of a documentary about New York City by a different Burns. I saw portions of the show dealing with the construction of the Chrysler building and the Empire State Building. Can anyone tell me:
- What is the full name of the Burns who made the documentary about New York City?
- How many episodes did I miss?
