I'm sorry you are so scared of the muslim boogeyman and that your feeling were hurt during 9-11. Thankfully, it was mostly, in Ms. Palin's terms, not real Americans perished that day. I mean it was planes from Boston, New York and Newark, New Jersey flying to California and buildings in New York and Washington D.C., and we all know what kind of people come from there.

A note from Radarsite: For those of you who may not have had the pleasure of seeing it before, the cartoon at the top of this article is courtesy of the liberals favorite website Daily Kos. Although they later attempted to deny that it had ever appeared there, one of our intrepid readers managed to find a screen shot of that Daily Kos page. Here is Radarsite's article about it. The next two cartoons have not been published here before, and are from the same British site which the Daily Kos used to retrieve that first cartoon. I will not give that site any additional publicity by naming it here again . The comment below the cartoons was not published with these cartoons, but was transposted from Susan Duclos' Wake Up America. It is in response to my recent Radarsite article October in New England: Conflicting Signs, Competing Realities.
I would like to address this postscript to you, my readers. How do these tributes make you feel? What do they say to you personally? It's not up to me to search for the appropriate adjectives here, is it? I mean, what adjectives could I possibly come up with that would to do justice to these tributes ? How many of them would I have to use? Are you as affected by these tributes as I am? Is there anything you'd like to say?
Would you like to know how I feel right now? I feel embarrassed. Yes, I think that's the right word. Or perhaps ashamed would be an even better word. I am embarrassed and ashamed to be included in the same species that could produce such words and pictures and then proudly disseminate them throughout our shared cyberspace.
This is not just a space for me to express my own personal outrage. This is your space too. This is your world too. Do you have anything you'd like to say about all this? Because I would sure like to hear it. - rg
