    ...and everything else I've tried to watch recently.
    Rented Somewhere In Time last week, early in the film there's a skyline shot and I thought I saw a big black WTC tower. I wasn't. It was Chicago and I had spotted the John Hancock Building. Now, that should have ended any unpleasant associations, but it didn't. A few minutes later Christopher Reeve is driving north on Lake Shore Drive and in the backgroud is a city I know and love and have many special memories of.
    All I could see was a jet melting into the Hancock.
    A few days later I was watching Superman. You can imagine how badly that went. The man in the tight pants even lectures Lois on how safe flying is.
    Last night it was 66 year old The Bride Of Frankenstein.
    There's a windmill burning, that's all it took.
    I really see no end to this visualization. But I'd like to.

    My wife & I wanted to watch a movie to take our minds off all the evil being directed at our country. We wanted to watch a movie where good wins over evil. So we picked Superman. Unfortunately we were reminded of the evil in the numerous scenes with the World Trade Center in the background.
    For us this dismal feeling won't go away until the evil perpetrators are exterminated.
    That won't be for a long time...

    Stay away from RAMBO 3, THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS. They show the Afgahns as heroes.

    DO what I do in times of dire need for escapism...Watch the Marx Bors. movies. Actually any type of comedy. The night of the disaster, when I had enough of the news and I needed something to ease my mind before I went to bed, I watched Some like it Hot.
    These things really help!
