I don't know whether this was already posted when it first came out about a couple of weeks ago, but if anybody ever wonders why the self-indulgent media and literati types in the US aren't behind us in the war against terrorism, here's a shining example of a young, spoiled brat of a writer who has access to the media. I am against hitting women, but I'd surely suspend that rule just once to give her a sock in the jaw, and I wouldn't lose a moment's sleep over it. What a sad case- too bad there are so many liberal media types like her...

"I just felt, like, everyone was overreacting," Wurtzel told a Canadian journalist last week about her experience being near Ground Zero on Sept 11. "People were going on about it. That part really annoyed me." Wurtzel - whose debut book "Prozac Nation" is being made into a movie starring Christina Ricci, while her follow-up, "Bitch," flopped - also declares that when her mother called to tell her a plane had crashed into one of the Twin Towers, "My main thought was: What a pain in the ass." Despite numerous frantic phone calls to her Greenwich Street apartment, not far from the World Trade Center, the emotionally stunted scribe couldn't be bothered to get out of bed until the second plane crashed, reports the Toronto Globe and Mail. When she finally did drag herself to a window and saw the towers collapse, Wurtzel says, "I had not the slightest emotional reaction. I thought, 'This is a really strange art project.' " Then her windows blew in and airplane chunks landed on her roof.

(cont.) She may not have been moved by the horrific spectacle of the massacre but, in retrospect, Wurtzel says, the towers' destruction "was a most amazing sight in terms of sheer elegance. It fell like water. It just slid like a turtleneck going over someone's head. It was just beautiful." Wurtzel says she "cried for all the animals left there in the neighborhood" after the attack, but as for the 3,000 human victims, "I think I have some kind of emotional block. I think I should join some support group for people who were there." Wurtzel acknowledges she'd never dare say such things in the U.S., noting, "You can't tell people this. I'm talking to you because you're Canadian." Wurtzel was up north last week plugging her third book, "More, Now, Again: A Memoir of Addiction," which details the trials and tribulations she supposedly endured writing "Bitch," a collection of essays about powerful women. It didn't sell well despite the fact that Wurtzel posed nude for the cover. Summing up her feeling post-9/11, Wurtzel muses: "You know what was really funny? After the fact, like all these different writers were writing these things about what it was like, and nobody bothered to call me." Of course, she says, "I don't want to tell other people's stories."

Who's Elizabeth Wurtzel? Is she important? Why do her feelings matter anyway?
