I find myself tense in the lead-up to September 11th. I feel most of New York has been comfortably past obsession with the events themselves for some time but America is not yet, and they will never let us alone. Apparently there is now a special tourist memorial built at Ground Zero and the word is it will have an expensive admission fee. I'll consult my thesaurus but I doubt there is a word to describe how that makes me feel. "Grateful for the tourist support but excluded from regular involvement" — on second thought, this is already a known feeling in New York. As to the way we were manipulated with terror "alerts" during the Bush-Cheney years, the less said the better.
I have never gotten comfortable with the name "9/11", which seemed to dominate media coverage of the aftermath of the attacks. However, on the ground in New York in those days, "September 11th" was the main name I heard used; being without a TV I use it still.
I have been dismayed at the complications that overtook the rebuilding of the World Trade Center — I had expected that to be done very rapidly, as a show of stamina and drive.
