How Wednesday, 9/1/2002 looks from New York:
a) Like last year, we have another primary election but this time it will
be the 10th.
b) While there will be services and commemorations, Wednesday will be
another workday ( those who still have jobs are not going to miss a day's
c) Interestingly, nobody around here is calling 9/11 "Patriots Day" yet.
We're kinda slow on name changes - we still call the Avenue of the
Americas, "sixth avenue, " a full 60 years after Mayor Fiorello La Guardia

d) We're thinking about Pennsylvania, Washington, DC and are extremely
grateful for the outpouring of support and good will that came from all over
the US and the World.
e) The decision of the ACGA last September to keep to its decision to hold
the 2002 convention in NYC was almost unique in the slew of group
cancellations that were made in the wake of the attack. Having the
convention here, with representatives from throughout the states and the
world meant more than words can say. Thanks gardeners!
