Read in September, 2010

When I first read this in 2004, I thought Art Spiegelman made some good points. Now, I think he was a prophet. On the ninth anniversary of a day when everybody remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing, any genuine sentiment surrounding 9/11 has ossified into pro forma speeches, flag lapel pins, and political jockeying (while always blaming the other guys for doing it first.) Back in 2002 when he started No Towers, Spiegelman was the only person brave enough or pessimistic enough to say the real tragedy of 9/11 was that we haven't changed at all.

"The towers have come to loom larger than life, but they get smaller every day. Happy anniversary."
