You may remember I blogged about the huge fire that destroyed the Lincoln building awhile ago. A reader saw it and sent me this e-mail:
“I was a resident at the Lincoln, and I noticed you wrote a blog about it online. I also noticed there was a picture. As with many of the residents, I lost everything I owned in the fire. I also found my cat, dead with his head lying in his food dish 18 days later when they let us in the building. Being an animal lover and a pet owner, this tore me apart, as I was away the weekend it happened and wish I had been here to save him. I would like to know if you have any other pictures, information, or anything that may help me understand this catastrophy any better. I appreciate any information you have. Thank you.”
Looks like Metroblogging can do some good after all.
