What I wonder is how many will also hold Giuliani responsible for the deception. People carelessly sent to slow death, when the city and federal governments had no idea whether it was safe or not, but had every reason to exercise extreme caution. Like a parent telling their kid to go ahead and swim right after eating because it'll save time.
All so the stock market could keep rolling. But then, the powers that be that we've had since the beginning of the century consider every life not their own dispensable. Not toward any great cause except convenience, though. If we'd had a nuclear attack, they'd have told us the same damn things. As long as we shop, spend, and work; our blood may run red, but our money stays green.
But then, it's us who let them remain in power while we can plainly see our blood dripping from their chins. So we probably deserve it. Too bad we won't learn anything from it. How many lives would that take?
All of them.
"Given the scope of the tragedy from last week, I am glad to reassure the people of New York and Washington, D.C. that their air is safe to breathe and their water is safe to drink." Christine Todd Whitman, Sept. 18, 2001
"Eternity with Beelzebub, and all his hellish instruments of death, will be a picnic compared to five minutes with me and this pencil." - E. Blackadder, 1791 Questionable
