While the passing of the second year following the New York tragedy still hovers over American minds, I wandered around a bit through the internet, perusing what people might be saying about it. As expected the Net, press, and television are inundated with the same old American self-pity and “we had it worse than anyone else in history” mumbo-jumbo. The sentimentalism is cloying, the excuses nauseating, and the self-righteousness impossible to sympathize with.
