On the upcoming anniversary of one of the most deadly attacks on American soil, this post made me smile and nod my head. Tam always has that effect on me, but today I nodded even harder.

What I expected to see was a gleaming new building that epitomized the spirit of the American people after such a tragedy. Instead, I saw only the beginnings. You would think that 9 years would be plenty of time, but I guess a few people had to talk about it for a while, or 9 years or so.
