She’s been sick in the head for many, many years – has it now affected her body?
We were not there on the day – fortunately for us. But we were invited over to NYC and Washington D.C. a few days afterwards by a media company who offered us a $5,000 advance cheque, return-trip tickets from Europe, and a contract to write a book about, and become a TV talking-head expert on, terrorism.
We had press access to the sites.
What we saw, coupled with the fact that we had no expertise on terrorism whatsoever, induced us to send the cheque back, tear up the contract, and go on unemployment benefits instead.
What we cannot show, but what we cannot forget, is the smell.
