So, Mr. Stewart--only the Daily Show is allowed to express honesty with sarcastic dickism? We should allow the religious fanatics to control public landmarks? If Obama has taught us anything, it's that compromising with fanatics WORKS. And what the hell does this have to do with health care? Hit the FAIL gong.
If a crescent moon had been found at Ground Zero would Fox News and Jon Stewart be rushing to defend and mount it at the site as a memorial? If one of the many falafel carts that service the many business men in that area were found among the wreckage would people be rushing to make it a symbol at Ground Zero?
To erect a cross at Ground Zero is to signify that it was a tragedy for a singularly Christian nation which the United States is not. There are people of other faiths and beliefs who are equally affected by the tragedy. Therefore I do not think any sort of cross should be erected at Ground Zero.
