Five years after 9/11/2001

9-11 Garbage ManLike most New Yorkers who were here on 9/11, my memories of that morning are with me every day, and I have already said much on the topic over the past five years. But I don’t have anything specific to write today about the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that wouldn’t get me worked up with anger as I write it. So instead, I’ll share this photo I just took of a garbage collector named PelĂ© in midtown, and link to these two 9/11 related entries I’ve previously written on this site:

My idea for a WTC Memorial.

9/11 images in 3-D.

And of course, as boneheaded as this war may be, everyone please give some thoughts to our soldiers in Iraq today. Think about why they are there, and then think about why they are really there. And when you go to the ballots soon to vote in the midterm elections, please vote wisely.
