  • How San Diegans reacted to 9-11

  • “Where were you when the World Trade Center was hit?”
  • “At home.”
  • “And you happened to have the TV on?”
  • “No, my little sister called. She woke me up and said, ‘Turn on the television. We’re under attack.’ I yelled, ‘No, we’re not.’ But she kept telling me, so I turned on the TV and watched the plane go into the building, and then the building fell down.”
  • “Nice way to get up in the morning.”
  • “I was in shock. I wondered what it meant, because I own an online travel agency."
  • By Patrick Daugherty, Dec. 20, 2001
Dillon Taylor: "The feeling was ‘We need to find these people and take care of this.’ "
Don Bauder. Gwinn letter to UT: "Mr. Bauder has misrepresented the truth through conduct that may be legally actionable."
  • Did San Diego City Attorney Casey Gwinn try to get Don Bauder fired from the Union-Tribune?

  • "After reading Mr. Bauder's column, I contacted Zane Mann to inquire of Mr. Bauder's interview with him. Mr. Mann told me that Don Bauder called him and told him that 'The city does not have a bond counsel opinion' for the proposed financing. Mr. Mann said that his entire conversation and all of his comments were premised on that false statement by Don Bauder."

  • Did Bin Laden's Brother Live a Secret Life in San Diego?

  • What was Binladen, now 35, heir to a multibillion-dollar Middle Eastern fortune based on construction and Saudi oil, doing in San Diego? And why would he be involved in a small-time tulip-importing business -- based out of a two-room office in a Sorrento Valley industrial park, which, according to its other owner, lost $100,000 of Binladen's money before going under after just a few years?

  • None darker than me

  • People of color were beginning to move into Sherman Heights and Golden Hill. There were colored Civil War veterans who lived in Golden Hill — Robert Tillman and Alexander Luckett and his family. There was another colored man who owned the Palm Nursery.

Logan Heights, c. 1900. After a while there were enough people to have a church, the Mt. Zion Baptist Church, between Thirtieth and Thirty-First on Greeley Avenue.
  • Married rich

  • Union-Tribune publisher Helen Copley, ex-mayors Maureen O'Connor and Susan Golding, and McDonald's heiress Joan Kroc all started their lives with humble means, only to find fortune and power in the arms of wealthy husbands.

  • San Diego – one hundred years ago today

  • One hundred years ago, fewer than 18,000 people lived in the city of San Diego. Fewer than 40,000 lived in the county, which then was twice its current area. The San Diego Union was one of four daily papers reporting on the news from here and afar. During the month of January 1901, most issues of the Union were eight to ten pages.
