Oklahoma City -- Am safe, stand down troops. Was downtown but several blocks NE of target. Felt shock all the same; flashed back to London '77. Shot couple rolls on scene, third from top of carpark. Massive pall of smoke over site, looks like whole block. Got close enough to smell ANFO, whole great lorryload no doubt. Emergency response fast, competent, effective. Won't say same for cops, though too soon to tell. Target was apparently Fed building and courthouse. Early reports muddled but seems childcare centre involved. Potentially much worse than NYC. Fingers now point to usual ME suspects, should probably pack up my kafiyeh for duration. Will call you in LA late late m.t. Stop worrying. Love you. -- A. Stop worrying
