    Hi:

    I remember when I first heard this on the radio -- driving the Los
    Angeles Office of INS. I hate to admit this -- my first thought was "Is
    there an INS office in OKC?" But part of that question was based upon
    the selfish fact that I happen to spend a lot of time in Federal
    Buildings. Security doesn't bother me all that much.

    Had a removal hearing last Friday where the Homeland Security Trial
    Attorney did everything in her power to compromise the security of the
    courtroom. I was truly frightened -- and that attorney could not
    understand why I would be frightened of having several very angry people
    sitting BEHIND me and my client. A well thrown cell phone , purse, or
    make-up kit can really hurt. Immigration courts don't have armed
    bailiffs and during a break I found it necessary to have security come
    into the courtroom -- and the Homeland Security attorney tried to have
    the security guard leave. Fortunately, the Judge returned at the point
    and agreed with me.

    When the next hearing was being set at the end of the day, the Homeland
    Security Attorney asked for an order to ensure that the people who had
    threatened my client and I could be in the courtroom!

    Go figure.

    I remember this day as if it were yesterday, I was coming back from a
    trip to France (Bordeaux) with my classmates, when I heard the news.. I
    bursted into tears so did my classmates, we couldn't understand why
    something this horrible could happen.
    Thanks for the link Elaine.

    I am from Oklahoma. I was still attending Oklahoma State University when
    the bomb went off. The university is about 1 hr 15 min. drive from
    downtown OKC. That morning I was getting ready for class. I felt the
    ground move, I actually thought that Oklahoma had an earthquake.

    During the time of the tragedy, this state was one big family. I have
    never felt so much love in all my life. Its going to be a scare forever
    to heal for Oklahoma.
