I sat at my desk with the TV only inches from head when our managing editor, Jim Mason, received word from our circulation manager to tune into CNN immediately. Something “big” was up for the newsroom to switch in the morning from ESPN Sportscenter to CNN.

But from my chair looking up at the screen, an odd sight was being broadcast. A plane had crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York city.
