From October 5, 2019
From my balcony I could see plumes of black smoke rising from the embattled streets. Some staff reported seeing or hearing gunfire. One staffer said, “People were ducking.” There were news reports of numerous shootings. Billy sent me an email at 12:30pm, saying he spent the morning trying to get to Santa Chiara. He took three different routes to get to work, but all were blocked.
