Jill Stewart Dissents

Jill Stewart is fed up with certain aspects of September 11.

I don't agree with much of what she writes, but it's interesting that she's willing to go against the tide, and she makes some good points.

Ms. Stewart takes a level headed, down-to-earth approach. And her article to some extent illustrates the old adage: "If you can keep your head while all about you are losing theirs, then you probably don't completely understand the problem."


UPDATE: Mickey Kaus points out:

The semi-official party line on the right, regarding the 9/11 anniversary, is to disdain blubbery mawkishness in favor of clear-eyed action -- as puts it, "Remember and move on. There is work to be done." Jennifer Harper echoes the theme in a forceful Washington Times essay and Peggy Noonan says "a certain coldness is in order."
