How about the police, fire and other first responders that were there. If ham radio is to be applauded for its part, those people should be too--and even more so since they put their lives on the line for the runners.

Just my .025--inflation adjusted.

From what I have seen and read, there were many non First Responders that jumped in as well. Citizens at large. Let's not forget that the ham radio ops. position was to communicate first.

No public communications system is designed to handle all users simultaniously. Not cell phone, not land line, and not the Internet.
