WTC Fountain

As I mentioned the last two years, the above photo is from This is how I want to remember the World Trade Center and the people I knew there, not the smoldering ruin or empty pit that it later became.

A lot has happened since last year. I did not intend to take the day off this year, but as it happened, I ended up working from home. This year, I find that remembering the the tragedy of that day does not hurt as much. In the past, I could not watch any of the many documentaries on account that I simply felt uncomfortable.

We’re now in another election cycle and the GOP is (for now) toning down the rhetoric. Frankly, while I blame the terrorist who actually did this evil act, 9/11 is, IMO, the GW Bush administration’s biggest failure, which is saying a lot as they demonstrate incompetence in most matters. Ironically, the GOP is touting Sen. McCain’s Vietnam experience (Gee, Any stupid, offensive purple heart Bandaids this time??? No?)

Music I’m listening to right Now:
Nothing. I’m just taking it easy today.
