Dan Rather: Coming home 9/11, I Read the Bible.


The CBS anchor talks to Texas Monthly magazine about

covering the terror attacks:


That first day, I got home at five-fifteen in the morning.

I know from past experience that you can’t just have a

glass of milk and go to bed. There’s always a long glide

down. This time, there was no glide down. My head was so

full. I had to be back at the office at nine the next

morning. I tried to read for a while, something completely

different. I read the Bible. Frequently that will take my

mind off things. It didn’t. Then I picked up whatever I

could find. I tried to read Richard Reeves’s new book about

Richard Nixon. I got through three sentences. I ate, paced,

tried to sleep. Sleep wouldn’t come.
