NEW YORK -- Days before the fifth anniversary of the destruction of New York's World Trade Center by terrorists, city officials gathered on the site where the Twin Towers once stood to dedicate the newly completed 9/11 Memorial Hole.
"From the wreckage and ashes of the World Trade Center, we have created a recess in the ground befitting the American spirit," said New York Governor George Pataki from a cinderblock-and-plastic-bucket-supported plywood platform near the Hole's precipice. "This vast chasm, dug at the very spot where the gleaming Twin Towers once rose to the sky, is a symbol of what we can accomplish if we work together."
Pataki then cut a ceremonial ribbon to release a giant blue plastic tarpaulin, reportedly the largest of its kind, which fluttered and snapped while slowly settling into the detritus and mud at the bottom of the 70-foot Hole, drawing a long, tired sigh of resignation from the estimated crowd of 50,000 who had assembled to watch and shake their heads.

Are you teasing me?
Is it on like Grey Poupon?
Am I gonna have to start vlogcasting in a bikini?
How dare you allow Adam Green to vlogcast about cuomosexuals and chocolate doughnuts? How dare you!
There is a whole process to vlogging that I find totally unsatisfying. I hate editing and I hate compressing files for better streaming because it takes too long and I want to put thing up on the web NOW! The upside of editing and going through frames is that you get to crack yourself up with the body language of your subjects.
Case in point : I could spend hours watching Christine Quinn talk ... with the volume off. Check her out. She looks like she's singing --although I suggest she get a voice coach because she strains her voice during speeches. Girlfriend, breathe!
Then it's not even anything they're doing.
I happen to like the camera perspective on these photos
of Sylvia Friedman and Al Doyle.
And then, there is Mark Green...

You know what? Not only is Bush the worst President ever, but he is also the biggest embarassment to America. Okay, so Bush freaking out a baby in Germany wasn't completely his fault, though his expression of complete abandonment of all responsibility was disgusting. But Bush's latest embarassing act in Germany is just plain inexcusable in a man who is on a diplmatic mission. At the G-8 summit, President Bush reached from behind to grab German Chancellor Angela Merkel and gives her a quick massage before rushing off. This is a condescending and inappropriate gesture when one leader is interacting with another. Chancellor Merkel was clearly horrified at Bush's behavior.
Okay...THIS is the man who we have as our leader? THIS is the man who is determining our foreign policy? Sheesh! I bet Elmer Fudd would be a more dignified and diplomatic leader than Mr. "I peed on a police car and daddy got me off the hook" Bush.
