Operation Find Don

Operation Find Don Operation Find Don. Sars, of Tomato Nation, is looking for a man that she met near the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and she's asking her readers for help. All she knows about him is that he lives in Jersey City and that September 11 is his birthday. Can a six degrees of internet separation approach work?

Does she know his name is Don?

Oops. But doesn't it fit in nicely with the "New Words! New Words!" post below?

i thought it would have fit better in the existing 9/11 thread, then again, it may have been lost in there.

I thought Sars was eradicated. But then Sars popped up again in Singapore this week.

I thought the degrees of separation thing for was when you know the start and the finish of the chain, and you want to establish the minimum number of links inbetween ... This seems more like a random search - either you know who Don is or you don't. ('pologies for being picky, amarynth)

Interesting tactic, and you're definitely helping by posting here. (And that's a good -- or at least harmless-- thing.)
