I am not following the Philidelphia reference....? 380,000 deaths on
Christmas this year? Did I miss something?


Selected Historical Catastrophes by City:

   City Country Deaths Date
------------- -------- -------- --------------
New York U.S. 5000 Sep. 11, 2001
Hiroshima Japan 70000 Aug. 6, 1945
Tokyo Japan 110000 Mar. 11, 1945
Dresden Germany 165000 Feb. 13, 1945
Nanking China 300000 Dec. 13, 1937
Philadelphia U.S. 380000 Dec. 25, 2001
Carthage Tunisia 450000 Spring, 146 B.C.
Leningrad U.S.S.R. 1500000 -- 1944

Thus the fears of some New Yorkers---that their city will
never recover---though understandable, are not well-founded.
