    Just returned from five days in NYC, where among other activities, I visited the 9/11 memorial.

    I have to say it was impressive. The design of it was very well done. It was a solemn tribute to those who died that day, and a poignant reminder of our spirit.

    When the Visitor Center and the Museum are done, it will be even better. I cannot wait to return.

    I was also very impressed that the literature stated the the attacks were perpetrated by Islamic Terrorists. Not simply Terrorists, or Extremists, or any of that PC shit.

    I looked but couldn't find a mosque there. I'm sure it is there somewhere but it isn't readily apparent. Perhaps I didn't find it because while looking I found an Irish pub and then didn't look any more. ;)

    I have photos but being technologically challenged, I don't know how to post them.

    That's ok. I'm too hung over to explain how LOL.

    But thanks for the report. Anything else exciting in the big apple?

    We survived a big storm and put Obama back in the white house.

    There are several mosques near ground zero and I would support a fleet of them building there if they wanted and they had all the correct permits, FWIW :)

    Gotta love it.

    Some of the people killed in the 9/11 attacks followed the muslim religion.
