    Eerie WTC photos…I just had a flashback to a time in 1972 when I was a kid on Gov. Rockefeller’s staff and we were making plans to move our offices to the WTC. I had a SE harbor-view space, in the 60s I think. Anyway, it was spectacular, and many wondered how we’d ever get any work done.

    I vividly recall Anne Whitman, the governor’s personal secretary (previously Pres. Eisenhower’s) putting her not-insignificant foot down and declaring that she would NOT be moving “down there” from 22 W55th Street. And she never did; NAR became VP. I didn’t either; instead going off to Army basic training and returning to Albany.

    Hey Ray — good to see you around these parts again. I’m reading Ike’s Bluff and Ann Whitman is spoken of quite a bit. Apparently, Mamie Eisenhower was none too fond of Ann and only visited the Oval Office four times while Ike was president — and never when Ann was around.

    One other fun fact, Ms. Whitman was from Perry, Ohio not far from where I grew up.

    Smith Journal is the best and most enjoyable magazines I have ever read. You can get a copy at mutinydc on the cheap with free shipping!

    I’ll have to check out Snow Peak at some time other than my early morning stumble through the Pearl on my way to work.
