My comments on 9/11

Clearly, I’ve moved on. Today is my friend Karen Homa’s birthday, and that’s how I like to think of the day.

The memory of all those people, and the people who died trying to save them, has been tainted in my mind by the purely political use to which the images of suffering were put, and the wars still raging that were its consequence.

I’m sick of 9/11 and of the hideous arrogance that passes for patriotism it constantly invokes.
