|My House,My Rule.
The Rule: guests are polite to other guests, and to the host.
I'm posting this at the top of my blog, because, after due consideration, I have determined that it warrants saying. Current Mood: implacable

|Ten Years On
Logan International Airport, Boston; Washington Dulles International Airport; Newark International Airport (now Newark Liberty International.)
This is where the 9-11 attacks began. People in NYC are tired of the place they still call World Trade being called Ground Zero. They want their city back.
And they are *very* tired of it being called 9-11. They don't live then.
Please don't ask for directions to either place.

For a year I rode the E
to World Trade,
Worked at Lehman
and wore suits with big shoulders
in soft colors
to prove my worth to men
who wouldn't fuck a girl with short hair.
My desk was on the eighth floor,
low enough to avoid the sway of engineering.
I shopped at lunch,
brown-bagged on marble steps, and
listened to music I didn't even like
amongst fake palms:
status for a desert in which we did not live.
All these years on and
people still go quiet in closed stations,
in our Pompeii.
The human mind is constructed, my mother says, to forget pain.
So when the tourists ask:
"Does this train go to Ground Zero?"
No, I say,
It goes to World Trade.

|In Memoriam :Χαλάζι την Τιμήθηκε νεκρούς!
In Memoriam « PNC-Minnesota Bureau
This famous speech was given by the Athenian leader Pericles after the first battles of the Peloponnesian war, but he could easily be talking about the United States and our war dead. Pericles gave this speech to honor the dead of his time and to extol the virtues of his city and its people. Edior’s note: The first two paragraphs, which talk of the tradition of funeral orations, have been omitted.
“Our constitution does not copy the laws of neighboring states; we are rather a pattern to others than imitators ourselves. Its administration favors the many instead of the few; this is why it is called a democracy.( Read MoreCollapse )
“And now that you have brought to a close your lamentations for your relatives, you may depart.”

Happy birthday to our Sovereign Lady, Her Majesty Elizabeth II, the Queen in Right Of Canada, against Whom we have never rebelled, unlike those Well-Meaning-But-Misguided Unfortunate People Adjacent To Us!
