6:45 AM - I am keeping a close watch on all of this. It is like watching a car wreck, but worse. It reminds me, in a sense, of that day in September 2001. That's the feeling in the air right now. The Crosstown and 494 are closed between 35W and 35E.
There is something of a standoff at the Mall. Shots are still being fired, reportedly on both sides. I really hope folks don't do something stupid.
Crap! I still have to pack my lunch. Good thing I still have chili leftovers from this weekend.
