TheStreet.com Revisits Sept. 11
Our coverage of the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks begins today.
We spent much time and angst deciding what stories to include. Once you spend some time with each, I hope you'll agree that our package is comprehensive, insightful and compassionate.
Three of our stories cover the anniversary from a more personal note -- Jim Cramer's "The Making of a Hawk," George Mannes' "Faint Glow Alights on a Once-Ashen Wall Street" and "What We Saw the Day Time Stood Still," a narrative of first-person accounts of that time. A bit of explanation about the writers of these stories and their experience with each: Our offices on Wall Street are two blocks away from where the World Trade Center towers stood. Jim Cramer was in our offices the day of the attacks, as was George Mannes, who spent the rest of that afternoon courageously shooting photos and writing stories that kept our site going.I can say publicly that George's work during that afternoon was some of the best I saw. We also have included a link to our coverage that appeared on TheStreet.com during Sept. 11, 2001. Six other pieces in the package are classic TheStreet.com articles, with solid analysis of industries, stocks and companies. "Our Sector Analysis," by a myriad of writers examines the top industries -- including technology and software -- while Matthew Goldstein looks at the loss of documents from the attacks had affected businesses. Aaron Task takes a look at patriotic investing, with a shrewd eye as to what advantages and disadvantages it presented. Diane Hess and Scott Moritz examine the rebuilding of Wall Street and the telecom industry, respectively. Kenneth Li found Ricochet, a company that prospered after the attacks, and takes a serious look at its future prospects. On the anniversary of Sept. 11, two of our premium sites -- RealMoney and RealMoney Pro -- will be free and available to all. Out of respect for remembering the events, no ads or marketing materials will appear in our stories included in the Sept. 11 package. On a personal and professional note, one of our most popular contributors -- Bill Meehan -- was killed in the attacks of Sept. 11. We have not forgotten his courage, his wisdom and his dedication to the financial industry as we worked throughout the past year and in the preparation of our Sept. 11 series. In Bill's memory, we present this collection of his writings, and remembrances from colleagues.
