The Word - Mutally Assured Coercion

Can we put out a 'cease and desist' order on calling the site of the WTC 'sacred ground'? We don't have sacred ground in this country. That's one of the founding principles of the nation. Separation of chuch and state, and all that.

The World Trade Center was mostly a building dedicated to commerce, filled with a lot of Wall St. firms, among others. There was an Islamic prayer center there, and probably similar things for other faiths, but it's still not sacred ground. It's the site of a terrible tragedy, and not to diminish the lives that were lost, that makes it historic, not sacred.

Strangelove is my all time favorite satirical movie...hard to imagine it ever being topped...but Colbert did a great job, uncanny actually. You can't fight in here! This is a War Room!
