133. Yes - sympathy and shock sums it up
>Canary Wharf in London was evacuated.

I was working in a window-less computer room a few blocks away from
Canary Wharf and tracking the tragedy via news sites on a different
server. When the news came through that Canary Wharf was been cleared,
the three of us in the room did a mental calculation, agreed that
CW couldn't reach us if it fell over and decided to carry on rather
than get stuck in the over-crowded tube system with a bunch of panicking
commuters.

I wasn't afraid but remember the feeling of "Are you *sure* this is
the news and not a film trailer?" ... very unreal.
