September 11 is over

This is the title of Tom Friedman's column today in the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune. I've long thought that the course of this nation following the attacks on the World Trade Center amounts to one continuous and disastrous overreaction and misdirection of energy and resources, the main example of which is the Iraq disaster. Not surprisingly, Friedman makes the case just a bit more cogently than I--this could have something to do with his exalted position in the international world of journalism vs. my little shared cubbyhole in the blogosphere--so you should go read him before you become distracted with Sunday's myriad tasks. I share his determination to vote for the candidate out there with the most "9/12" worldview, which pointedly excludes "America's Mayor."
