Is it New Yorkers or only some
I read this article today which was about Sen. Lieberman but the following paragraph really pissed me off.
As a New Yorker, where overt displays of patriotism are generally frowned upon, I was both a little uncomfortable with the video and curious as to the crowd’s reaction. I half expected to hear boos.
He goes on to say that the opposite was the case at least at San Diego's Seaworld but that paragraph really bugged me.
As someone who grew up in and lived in NYC for many years I don't believe that overt displays of patriotism are frowned on, well maybe they are in the circles that Mr. Cox floats in but that is no reason for him to tar the millions of hard working New Yorkers which the tag of being anti american. Maybe he should get his elite head out of his ass and wave a flag from time to time. He has plenty of reason to.
If he needs to find something to write about I suggest that he focuses on the large hole in downtown that to my mind should have been replaced with a growing new World Trade Center years ago. The fact that they have not is a disgrace to the memories of all that died there.

While in NYC I hope to be able to go to the WTC site and take some pictures. I was hoping that things would be much advanced from the last time I was there 2 years ago. I think I will be upset given this news which I read the other day.
I hope they will rebuild the WTC in my lifetime but I fear that things are now in the hands of ball-less politicians and bureaucrats.

WTC Rebuild Update
The process for choosing final designs for the memorial part of the new trade center inches along.
There are other expenditures detailed in the article.
One wonders why $1 million from the Sept. 11 fund is going to fund a marketing campaign to attract visitors to Chinatown.
This makes very little sense to me, aside from the fact that this is not what the Sept. 11 fund is supposed to be used for, Chinatown does not need a marketing campaign, they can barely fit the people that go down there now.
