Whaur wur u 5 years ago today?


Ah wis oan the M90 fi Perth when pliable-faced former pop DJ Simon Mayo telt us oan Radio 5 thit a "small plane" hud hit the WTC. Bi the time the second plane crashed, ah wis oan the Forth Road brig, and fearful of a general Jihad targeting landmarks throughout the western world wis, ah kin tell ye, shitein ma breeks.
Kin u mind whit u wur daein?

I must have been the last person in Britain to know. I first heard about it at 5.30pm. I'd been working in my office, had no visitors all afternoon and only learnt when my sister came to give me a lift home.
