Being a New Yorker of a certain generation, I have, and will always have, my thoughts on today. As an anarchist and leftist of a certain generation, I have, and will always have, my thoughts on what came after. I move forward and backward in time, like a pendulum, like a human, from Salvador Allende to the destruction of the Mosul Museum, everywhere between and beyond. 9/11, all the 9/11s. Clear blue skies filled with smoke and all the days since. I have nothing to say. I have too much to say.
@Cathymarinara Essentially New Yorkers, by virtue of the size of the city, its national and global prominence, the international nature of the attack, were robbed of the right to mourn a local tragedy. 10 years later, Sarah Palin, campaigning for VP, would call rural America "real America", disconnecting New York City from the Nation that swung into a vicious reactive state for her sake.
@Cathymarinara New York is such a Jewish city that it's even treated like a Jew: A convenient historical figure to argue about in the past tense, and her own words, no one is interested in.
