Just got an e-mail from my Dad. He's writing from our home town of Lagrange, Indiana, which is just about as "middle-of-nowhere" as you can get. He says:

"You should have seen the gas stations around here yesterday. People were panicked and the cars were lined up 30 and 40 to a station. The Shell station in LaGrange pumped dry... Some of the stations started price gouging by raising the prices to any where from 4 to 6 dollars a gallon. I also heard on the radio this morning that there was a fire in Topeka and the Life Care helicopter from the hospital was grounded and a little Amish girl died because they couldn't get her to the hospital in time."

Everybody's affected. Everybody's panicking. Those planes didn't just hit the east coast. They hit America.
