Remember the cross-shaped beams pulled from the wreckage at the World Trade Center on 9/11? The symbol of faith and hope that inspired rescue workers and 9/11 families is being moved from the site. The 20-foot-tall artifact was discovered in the smoking ruins two weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and became a […]

Cox & Forkum say it all: *** Dimitri Vassilaros of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says “Kill the crescent.” The Philadelphia Inquirer calls critics “blind.” The Johnstown Tribune Democrat supports altering the memorial and cites the second-stage jury’s own words: “Consider the interpretation and impact of words within the context of this event,” the jury wrote in […]

My latest column, “Monumental surrender,” on the Flight 93 Memorial controversy, bubbling in the blogosphere for nearly a week, is up: War memorials should memorialize war. If you want peace and understanding and healing and good will toward all, go build Kabbalah centers… …A proper war memorial stirs to anger and action. We all remember […]
