"After 9/11, the United States has became a paranoid nation ruled by a psycho-cowboy"

Who exactly is paranoid now?

Remember when y'all were complaining about Ted Rall "using 9/11 to make a political point"? Well, there's a difference between Rall using 9/11 imagery to say something about 9/11 and this person who is evoking 9/11 for no good reason at all.

Yeah, all those people in NYC out on the streets partying down were really cowering in fear. What a maroon.

As someone who lives in Lower Manhattan, I sat on my building's stoop, chatted with my neighbors and searched the skies -- for Mars.

I was a teenager in 1977 living in Queens. I saw a bad blackout. This was a citywide block party for the residents and a night of urban camping for the Jersey/Long Island folks.

But hey, never let a time where people did their best stand in the way of a political point, right?

Where's the accompanying cartoon showing Ottawa being looted during the blackout?

Miss Liberty cowering in fear?

What a friggin' asshelmet.

It might surprise you, but I don't like the attitude behind the pics at all. I've ranted about the outage on my blog, but I perceived it more that the US folk are quite relaxed with this while I'd freak out about it, but it seems that the whole US is more used on natural catastrophes as floods and storms and also more used on this power outage problem. Maybe here in central Europe we're a tad pampered from mother nature.
It's ridiculous to make a connection to 9/11 when there is noone just in order to hurt feelings.

See, I don't think there's no connection. When the lights first went out I, like many people, thought terrorism and was scared. That lasted 20 minutes. But it was still a thought.

Faith, I think you're right, but what I noticed was that people immediately focussed on the details: How do I get home, should I buy water, batteries, ice.

Overall, here in Detroit the feeling was of just dealing with it. We're all in it together and there's no point in getting all hysterical.

To strike a tune: "Roll with the Changes" or maybe more appropriately "Ridin' the Storm Out"

Those are just ridiculous. What on earth does 9/11 have to do with a blackout?

I can't even come up with a tenuous connection the idea is so ludicrous

Working in the Manhattan financial district two blocks from Ground Zero, you can bet that when the power went out and I found out that power had gone out in all these other cities, that I definitely thought that it might be a concerted effort by terrorists. Walking up Broadway after being evacuated from our office there was definitely an undercurrent of anxiety in the crowd. I know I was wondering if there was going to be another shoe to drop. Maybe New York isn't jittery, but this New Yorker is definitely nervous.

What in the hell?

Get me some of what he's been smokin' please.
