Because September 11th only comes once a year. It’s only been a dozen years… indeed, I’ve been blogging for all of them… and yet, it all seems… so long ago when I got put out of my office a block from the WTC by the morning’s events, which seem ever more a distant memory (though I was there), and yet, the perpetual underpinning of what America has become.
Ah… just a dozen years ago… back when things like the Bill of Rights seemed so… relevant. When it wasn’t my college classmate (twelve years ago, a political non-entity in the Illinois state senate) and now, the President of the United States. the alleged Muslim socialist radical arch-liberal who used the occasion of this 9-11 Eve to propose murdering Syrian civilians himself in retaliation for Bashir al-Assad murdering Syrian civilians…
And today… a primary race in New York, to finally replace Mike Bloomberg, who was pretty much elected mayor a dozen years ago… because of 9-11.
Well… just saying… enough musing from me… happy 9-11 everybody.
Once more… with feeling.
