I'm sorry I let you down, Frank777. Are you going to be ok? Do you need a hug or something?
But you're right, now that I think about it. When a president intervenes
in order to get something done
, it is a horrible thing.
While everyone would hope the process would go smoothly, this is a memorial that we (New Yorkers, Americans and the rest of us around the world) will be taking our grandchildren to visit.
I really enjoyed visiting the site in late 2002. It was the best dirt pit in Manhattan I saw the whole trip.
The images from that day still haunt us and there are still children crying out for the parents they lost.
It is no wonder that jointly deciding what is proper memorial is meeting with significant delay.
Please explain how those two things are connected. Maybe those children are crying because there's no memorial for their dead parents? Maybe those children are crying because they just wish someone, somewhere, would step in and demand that the dirt pit be sanctified.
And oh, by the way. That thing that Coulter was attacking when she called the 9/11 widows "harpies"? You just did exactly the same thing she was complaining about.
