An Inclusive Litany

9/27/01

Another editorial cartoonist, Ted Rall, displaying his other talent as essayist in the Philadelphia City Paper, September 27, 2001:
We've been treated to some astonishingly vile images over the last two weeks: Office workers hurling themselves into a 100-floor-high abyss. A gaping, smouldering hole in the financial center of our greatest city. George W. Bush passing himself off as a patriot, even as he disassembles the Constitution with the voracious glee of a pirahna skeletonizing a cow.... It may have seemed meaningless at the time, but now we know why 7,000 people sacrificed their lives: So that we'd all forget how Bush stole a presidential election.
