I remember getting off my boat from a 4 day offshore trip that morning and hearing about it.

I was fired from a job the day before and I was more concerned about that attack than my future.

I just went through for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I highly recommend it, Piggy. The museum tour takes you from 9:00am through the conviction and death of McVeigh with an emphasis (as one would expect) on the victims.

As was said before, the memorial is a very impressive, solemn place. A quiet place to pay your respects to those lost.

Mc Veigh's arrest was the result of a traffic stop, for a license plate violation. Darn Cop's have nuthing better to do.

Prayer's sent for the victims and their Famalies.

I was a 20 something fund trader, and we were on a large floor with a couple hundred cubes. Its a noisy place, headphonse on, hundreds of people talking.

Then it went quiet. I remember standing up in my cube and looking out on the floor and we were all standing up, wondering why none of us had any calls......we knew it was bad to stop pretty much everyone in America in their tracks...

I've been working in federal facilities since exactly a month before that, and to this day I freak out a bit when I see any van or truck that's even remotely suspicious pull up in front.

As you probably already know, two of those were (probably) chosen because of the third (Waco).

One more month (May 18th) and we get the 84th anniversary of the Bath School Massacre, where again a man disgruntled over the government (taxes) detonated explosives and targeted children.

... and all because it's "Weed Day" and Adolph Hitler's birthday.

Mrs. RedHot & I were in a restaurant in London when the proprietor came over to us and expressed his condolences for the tragedy that occurred in our country.

The OKC bombing was done on the anniversary of Waco. Nichols, McVeigh, etc, were nut jobs.
