I heard a news report earlier today about the preparations NYC is making for it's New Years Eve celebration. The reporter said that the names of all of the police and firefighters that had died in the WTC attack have been engraved on the ball used to countdown to the new year. He also said that they have engraved the names of all of the foreigners who died in the attack as well. Nothing was said about any of the thousands of AMERICANS who died! So if you happened to be a Mexican janitor who died, you're names up there. Now if you were an American janitor, well sorry, you just don't make muster. I'm so goddamned sick and tired of this "let's be careful not to offend anyone" bullshit that I could scream. Or worse.

Unwad your panties, please. Before you get sick over something you "heard", check the facts first. The names are of the countries of origin of the many victims, not Jose the Mexican janitor. See here for facts about the ball... [url]http://www.timessquarebid.org/new_year/Ball%20Fact%20Sheet.htm[/url] See this link for the list of FD units and others on the ball...

OT: What about all of the folks who died at the Pentagon and the people who died in the plane crash in Pennsylvania. They were all part of the dasdardly deed.
