There Is No Wrong Way to Remember 9/11

I chose not to participate in any of yesterday’s ceremony and for that, I took a lot of heat. Any American capable of feeling was deeply impacted by 9/11. I was no exception.

Unaffordable College Costs Strengthens Class Warfare in America

In a country where further education is championed to compete in the world economy, this is totally unacceptable. The cost of college is always increasing and becoming unaffordable to most. If we are truly a country that aspire to inspire the next scientist, doctor, and engineer, then we must begin to look for alternative ways to make college affordable to all, not some.

Yet Another Musing On 9/11…

Ten years ago, and non-stop ever since, I have been told that ‘we’ are totally innocent victims of a single and singularly terrible atrocity. That no one could have foreseen it or kept it from happening. That nothing like it had ever happened before in the whole history of mankind. That because of it, there were certain carefully delineated groups of people I had to hate utterly and oppose uncritically – and yet other groups of people I had to love and obey without question.

ZZzzz...Jesus Christ! WTF is wrong with you?...ZZzzz...Uncle Steve, in your United States, the terrorists won...ZZzzz...Now just stay out of ours...ZZzzz...

Ten Years After: Has 9/11 Changed Us?

Ten Years After: Has 9/11 Changed Us?

Let’s face it, everything changed on 9/11. In every way imaginable, the terrorist attacks that occurred that day represented for the United States the most important demarcation point in its history, rivaling even the attack on Pearl Harbor and the entire Civil War. Not even its own successful revolution could […]

How Stupid is Too Stupid to Get Elected?

How Stupid is Too Stupid to Get Elected?

The Republican field of Presidential candidates is here. When listening to the media, only two stand out as the possible nominee, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry. Most conventional wisdom says that Perry isn’t a real threat. In the end, he’s too stupid to win with more moderate voters.

Reflections and Perspectives of September 11th

Reflections and Perspectives of September 11th

Personally, the most memorable moment of September 11th was being jarred out of my sleep by the constant ringing of my old, cellular, flip phone and hearing my cousin screaming at me hysterically telling me to turn on my television to CNN, because the country was being attacked.

ZZzzz...I'm gonna fly a kite!...ZZzzz...And buy some books!...ZZzzz...Huddle in a corner, terrified?...ZZzzz...Yeah, right!...ZZzzz...

10 Years of Being Held Hostage. It’s Time to Break Free

As we all know, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of 9/11. I moved away from the New York area a few months before that day. It still felt like home. My commute to the city often took me to the World Trade Center.

Is This Herman Cain Campaign Ad The Most Offensive Use Of 9/11 Ever?

It’s probably not a good idea to run a campaign ad featuring the tragedy of the September 11th terrorist attacks, depicting yourself as some kind of savior so you can gain something politically. But that is exactly what Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain did.

Remembering 911 In A Different Way

The most amazing thing about those few weeks after 9/11, was how much Manhattan changed. Not just because we were all living in fear, but there was something else that was happening around us. The honking stopped. The shouting quieted down and the city became, well, polite.

The Real Lesson Of September 11

The Real Lesson Of September 11

I believe the true legacy of 9/11 can be summed up with these words: ‘We have every right, and indeed an obligation, to fight evil; but in fighting evil, we must not let ourselves become evil.’
