latest from the new york times

What you see here are a christian, a muslim, and a hindu (not a jew, I wouldn't think!) strolling happily through the proposed islamic cultural center next door to Ground Zero, as reported in the new york times today.

The nyt, which insists on calling the project "park51," is fast becoming a parody of the America-hating left, even to the point of devaluing the language we used to have in common. Thus Ground Zero has become "ground zero." It's much more difficult to become attached to an icon when it's expressed in lower case letters, isn't it?

For the editors at the new york times, there in times square on manhattan island, here's a quick guide to usage:

ground zero: the point on the earth's surface directly above or below an exploding nuclear bomb

Ground Zero:
the point on Manhattan Island where the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001.

Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
