Matt Damon The Adjustment Bureau Movie Set at South Street Seaport

Security was tight on the set, by land and by sea.
I was at the Seaport today on the set of a new Matt Damon movie, The Adjustment Bureau. In the movie, Damon plays David Norris, a charismatic congressman who seems destined to be a political superstar. He meets a beautiful ballet dancer named Elise Sellas, only to find strange circumstances keeping their sparks from catching fire. Norris discovers forces are at work to keep them apart, and he peels the layers to find out why.

In Memorium of those who were just going to work that day

There is not much to say that has not already been said. Firefighters, Police, EMS and other First Responders knew they had a dangerous job. They signed on for a career that could result in the ultimate sacrifice. Hundreds of regular workers to dishwashers had no idea of the horrors to occur. The loss of any of the people who were lost in the 9/11 attacks is too many.
I was one of the last two people to leave my office in midtown that day. The streets were filled with people walking North, covered in toxic dust. Shell shocked.

When I got home in the late afternoon, I went to the one place that calms my mind and lets me think, my sailboat. Even there, there was no escaping that the world had changed that day.
