LILEKS: I link to James Lileks’s site over yonder (<-), but I felt like it needed to be highlighted somehow. He is probably one of the best writers journaling on the Web today: always funny and eloquent, and a treasure trove of pop cultural goodliness.

His writing the day after (it’s strange how you probably know exactly what I mean by “the day after”) is incredibly moving in its simple sublimity:

Went to Target. Life goes on, even if it’s in a state of tremulous fury and worry. Bought … frames. Simple items that will forever be tied to this day, these events; it�s like a water faucet you installed on the day Kennedy was shot. Every time you turn the tap, somewhere in the back of your head you remember.
