I grew up in Southern CT, very close to New York City. You can be in Manhatten in 40 minutes, so I have been there many times. Shortly after 9/11 I had this draw to go to the city to see it. I will never forget that smell. The buildings burned for months after the attack. The trade center is still nothing more than a hole in the ground. It was actually many years later until I drove home to CT. I will never forget when I was driving on the George Washington Bridge and looked over to see big gapping hole in the NYC skyline. No, Bob, I am not yet over it.
So yes, Bob, this is still raw. For the people who lived through this day and people who lived in the city at the time, it may remain that way forever for them. Apparently, you can blame for it, but personally, I don't have the heart to.
Then we have this idiot blaming President Bush for 9/11:
