"There was no ‘religion' in Mayor Bloomberg's disgustingly sterilized 9/11 10-year anniversary celebration at ground zero. But there were two Vietnam era anti-war ‘has-beens,' James Taylor and Paul Simon. What else would you expect from an independent/progressive mayor? Loved that Mrs. Bush moved out from behind the bullet-proof glass to look at the people."

"Get over 9/11? Really? That's the worst idea any venter has ever come up with. We could no sooner get over that terrible day than cut out our own tongues."

"In response to the venter on 9/11: There is a big difference between 9/11 and the other ‘wars' mentioned in the Vent "that it is time to ‘get over it.' The difference is that we do still remember 9/11 and we also remember 12/7/41: Pearl Harbor Day. These were both attacks on our soil. Korea, Vietnam, WWII (minus Pearl Harbor) and WWI were all on foreign soil. This is NOT obsessing, this is remembering."

"To the venter who feels we should get over 9/11: The difference is that our precious country was attacked by terrorists. Every November 11th we mourn the loss of our soldiers/heroes who died in past and present wars. The tribute to 9/11 commemorates the attack on our country by terrorists. Do you think the wounds ever heal? We can never forget!"

"Dear Linda Turley-Hansen: Could you be anymore blatantly blindly loyal Republican? Did you say at least we were safe under George W Bush's presidency? Really? Last I checked, 9/11 happened on his watch, and there was plenty of intelligence to suggest something was going to happen. I don't think the good people of New Orleans would agree they were ‘safe' under George W's watch either."

"Please, please take up a collection to get Linda Turley-Hansen the mental health treatment she so badly needs. If you don't agree, try reading her Sunday commentary."
