Around 1:00 this afternoon, after all the flights had been cancelled, I looked up to see something rare in Vancouver: a cloudless, warm, blue summer sky without a single plane in it.

Fifteen minutes later, I heard the sound of a jet. Puzzled, I sought it out, and it was another rarity here -- a lone military fighter, flying straight and level, east to west, surveying the city.

It disappeared and the sky was quiet again, and I walked again, to take my oldest daughter to preschool.

So far, the best summary and brief analysis of today's events at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and elsewhere has been from The Economist.
