Who's The Boss?

As M. Drury, of Hoboken, writes in a question today to ESPN's The Sports Guy, "The Rising" is still "the only artistically valid musical statement about 9/11."

I agree. From my office this summer, I can see ground zero. I'm reminded of the attacks every day now. The hardest part in confronting this is that it's been five years already. Ordinarily, it's time that heals the wounds. But, what, if anything, have we accomplished since? It's just shameful. Listening to this tune and staring at that barren plot is more than enough to give me the chills and clench a fist.
