Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot
This one makes my patented "Seriously, What The Fuck-ometer" go sky high. I live about 60 miles northwest of Somerset County, Pennsylvania where Flight 93 crashed on September 11, 2001. I have driven by this site several times and I seriously need to stop the next time I'm in Somerset. In my RSS feed today I find this article from WPXI News. Anyone who knows me knows that I am all for tolerance and acceptance, I’m gay, it’s kind of our thing, but to think that someone would design a memorial to the victims and heroes aboard Flight 93, a terrorist act carried out by Muslim extremists, to have so many references to Islam is deplorable. It is a giant crescent with a star on a tower that points to the site of impact and it just also happens that the star and crescent are in line with the holy city of Mecca. Seriously, What. The. Fuck.
