What’s Up With That?

Posted on January 24th, 2010

Early in January the Huffington Post reported on International Living’s 30th annual “Quality of Life Index.” France ranked #1 and the image used as that country’s national symbol was, of course, the Eiffel Tower. The United States placed seventh and symbolizing us wasn’t the US Capitol or the Empire State Building; it was the missing World Trade Center…

It would be hard to imagine a worse message to send the world than a 1776-foot tombstone and the “largest manmade falls in North America” — whose roar will recall the horrifying sound of crumbling towers — instead of the simple, stirring memorial that belongs there. They might as well include a neon sign flashing “Second-Class Country.” A headline about a mock-up of the morbid memorial falls in the 1/23/10 New York Post read: “9/11 shrine’s cascade of grief begins flowing!” Who thinks we’ve become the kind of country that enshrines grief? Whose doing is that? Not the people’s — that’s for sure.

Group Seeks to Ensure Rank and Title Appear with Names of 9/11 Responders

Posted on September 13th, 2009
Rebels With a Cause

Mayor Bloomberg, along with the 9/11 Memorial Planning Board, have long proposed that the Ranks and Titles of First Responders be stripped from the Memorial, and that they not be grouped separately as FDNY or PAPD or NYPD, etc. Rather, they would have the Rank-less and Title-less First Responder names be mixed amongst those of all of the deceased, so as not to “single them out” for extraordinary notice.

Please support the group ”911 Rank-Title Matter For All” in any way you can.
