I found myself saying this one yesterday- 5 years ago you would have called me crazy if I told you that there would be a mega-mosque going in where a building used to stand that was damaged on 9/11, and that it is scheduled to open on 9/11/11, the 10 year anniversary of that massacre, and that Americans are calling me bigoted for being upset.
