Your points aren't valid, this isn't about 9/11, it's about people's perceptions and memories of 9/11, something that you do not share with New Yorkers, to say otherwise is disingenuous. I'm sure there are plenty of New Yorkers who don't share my feelings, there are 8 million people in this city. But you aren't going to sit there and stamp this with the "9/11: Never Forget TM" symbol and tell me that not only does it affect everyone (which it doesn't,) but that you know more about what's happening in the city I live in than I do.
This is simply more partisan bullshiat. A smear campaign based on a stupid idea for a PR campaign. If you want to make this about 9/11 fine. But leave NY out of it. We've been the battlecry for everything shiatty that's happened in this country for the last 8 years. Nobody listened when we disagreed with it. Nobody's listening now. Keep banging that drum, but don't do it on our account (and I do speak for NYC when I say that.)
No, you don't speak for NYC at all ... just one person there. And NYC doesn't "own" 9/11 ... we all do.
