What I think about the so-called "ground zero mosque"

I'll set aside the fact that it's not actually at ground zero. I'll also set aside the bizarre and ignorant posturing that Islam as a whole is somehow understood to be the equivalent of Nazism (I must have missed the attempted genocide of Americans?). I'll just say this: if you don't live in the neighborhood of ground zero, keep your big mouth shut. This is an issue for New Yorkers - the ones that live there, not the ones who feel like "every American is a New Yorker because of 9/11" (bullshit) - to decide without the "help" of national politicians who want to win elections.

I agree. It's not really ground zero... Manhattan is very small and very densely populated. Everyone there needs something.
