The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

20 December 2003

Too close for comfort

HUD has informed nineteen of its Oklahoma City staffers that they will not be forced to work in the new downtown Federal Building, a block from the Oklahoma City National Memorial that stands on the site of the old downtown Federal Building, destroyed by bombers in 1995. Thirty-five people working for HUD were among the 169 killed.

The HUD staff will telecommute two days a week, and an alternative office location to be determined will be open three days a week. HUD facilities that had not been housed in the Murrah Building will presumably not be affected.

You mean, there actually exists HUD people in OKC? You couldn't have proved it by me. Check the telephone directory under US Govt. and see for yourself. I thought they were merely a 1-800 number somewhere connected to a totally automated system :(
