    I got this in an email today:

    This teardrop was made and installed by Russians to honor those killed in the 9-11 terrorist attacks and to stand as a statement against terrorism.

    I had never seen this until I got it in an email today. I didn't even believe it, so I looked it up on Snopes:

    Who'd have thunk that?

    Thanks Sunny, I did not know... and I'm glad I do now.

    Thanks Russia. That's very cool.

    Busy. It's only Russia.

    Shame on the media for not covering this better.

    They covered it just fine. The memorial is not in Russia, it was created by a Russian artist and displayed in Bayonne NJ, across the hudson from NYC.

    Snopes even lists the articles from the NYT and other sources that they used for their entry at the end of their article.
